Hoarding Awareness Week 2017

This year for Hoarding Awareness Week, Making Room are taking on some of the most common myths that we hear about hoarding, and setting the record straight!

MYTH #1

Hoarders are lazy people who don't care about their homes

MYTH #2

If people find out I'm a hoarder, I will lose my home.

MYTH #3

Only older people hoard

MYTH #4

Just chucking everything out will solve the problem

MYTH #5

When the level of hoarding is really bad, nothing can be done

In May 2016, Making Room held an open workshop in Hackney, to start a discussion on hoarding in Hackney, and what can be done to address this growing support need together.

In this short video, we discuss the challenges that face adults with hoarding behaviours, and those who support them, and share experiences and best practice with each other.
