Hoarding Awareness Week is an initiative started by the Chief Fire Officers Association in collaboration with Heather Matuozzo of Clouds End CIC and Cherry Rudge of Rainbow Red in 2014. It was launched at the Houses of Parliament and gives us the chance to make the Hoarding Disorder more well known and understood within our communities.

What is Hoarding? And, who can help? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions about Hoarding here: OSAB Hoarding Frequently Asked Questions.pdf
