The collection and storing of excessive numbers of belongings significantly affects a resident’s ability to live in their home. It creates a fire risk in over 70% of cases and often appears to be an intractable management problem. A clear understanding of the principal characteristics of hoarding behaviour is necessary before developing a management strategy to address its consequences, and prevent repetition.

This course transitions from understanding to identifying key elements for a management strategy. It provides a way forward through the legal process if a voluntary approach has not produced the necessary improvement. Managers, team leaders and frontline staff will benefit from the learning offered by this course.


1. Hoarding in context
2. Hoarding and mental health
3. Hoarding and legal action 

This Managing Hoarding online training course focuses on:

  • Developing an awareness of the main characteristics of hoarding
  • Creating an effective strategy based on objective criteria and risk assessments
  • Implementing a positive management approach
  • Understanding the complexities surrounding legal action and achieving the right result, including the impact of mental health.
