I am concerned that someone I know might be a hoarder, what do I do?

Read answer

A person with a tendency to hoard or diagnosed with hoarding disorder may be at increased risk from fire due to the amount of materials within their home causing extra fire loading. They may also experience difficulty in exiting the premises quickly in the event of emergency. We run a confidential peer support group to enable those who hoard, or family, friends or carers who support hoarders, to discuss the condition, obtain peer support, information and advice. Fire safety advice can also be offered during a Fire and Wellness Visit.
