Hoarding and Clutter Awareness

Homes that are extremely cluttered put the professional community and supporting teams at a disadvantage to deliver their profession to “best practice.”

Fire services national statistics state that fuel loading (clutter) causes up to 33% of injuries or deaths due to being unable to access the property quickly enough. Cluttering is also an issue for landlords as homes cannot undergo much needed repairs, refurbishment and safety checks due to inaccessibility.

This course has been developed to ensure that employees have the right skills and competencies to help you meet your core business needs.   Delivered by an experienced practitioner in the field, this training will include case studies and outcomes from her own experience of working with hundreds of hoarders, and from working in partnership with professional services in the community.
