Tackling Hoarding in Social Housing
Hoarding is a costly and resource-intensive problem for social housing providers. It is now recognised as a mental illness and with that comes protection for the hoarder in terms of enforcement action. It is estimated that the average hoarder costs a provider at least £35,000 over the life of the tenancy, and this figure is corroborated in independent findings. Jack Moore specialises in dealing with hoarding disorder and is a popular speaker at national safeguarding events and conferences. Jack is the Chartered Institute of Housing’s national trainer on hoarding. He is a proponent of partnership with Fire and Rescue and a shared hoarding database, use of the Clutter Image Rating, investment in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for relevant cases, action planning with strict timescales, and relapse prevention.
Hoarding support package and Hoarding training
Due to increasing demand from housing providers for ongoing support, Jack now offers an annual Support Package for Hoarding in Social Housing (HISH). The package offers true value for money and clients should see measurable and significant savings in their asset management finances.
Providers can also opt for bespoke training and consultancy on a day-fee basis (See the Advanced Hoarding Workshop as an example).
