Hoarding Awareness Week - Information and Resources

This week is National Hoarding Awareness Week (18-25 May)

Set up by the Chief Fire Officers Association, the campaign is being supported by the Environmental Team at Harborough District Council.

It is estimated that more than a million people in the UK may have a hoarding disorder, which can range from mild, where it may not have an impact on someone's life, to severe, where it seriously affects someone's ability to function in everyday life. Additionally, hoarding can present fire risks to individuals affected by the disorder.

If you would like more information on hoarding disorders, or would like support, the links below provide a range of resources:

A virtual support group takes place monthly hosted by OCD Action which can be accessed by skype or phone. For more information, please see the OCD Action website.
