Hoarding and Clutter Awareness 2019

11th September 2018 – Cardiff     £165 + vat course participant fee

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. SRLs, landlords, housing associations state that homes cannot under go much needed repairs, refurbishments or safety checks due to inaccessibility.

To ensure that employees have the right skills and competences to achieve and deliver your business core values we have developed our hoarding & clutter awareness training to meet those needs. Our training will include case studies and outcomes from our own experience of working with hundreds of hoarders and from working in partnership with professional services in the community.

Training aims

The aim is for delegates to develop a non-judgemental understanding of hoarding, an awareness of far reaching detrimental effects, a learning of strategies, skills, knowledge, competence and the confidence to achieve positive outcomes to ensure a professional delivery of support.

  • Delegates will be provided with a combination of supporting motivational tools which can be used to encourage and motivate those who live in the chaos of clutter to help themselves.
  • Training Objectives
  • Raising awareness of the need to improve safeguarding
