HUK TRAINING : 14 April – Housing Professionals for Support & Systemic Models for Hoarding Behaviour

Proud of Promoting Choice and Control Since 2008

Before the television shows…before the clinical criteria…when there seemed to be no support…we have been here to help!    Established in 2008, as a not-for profit organisation, HoardingUK is the only UK National Charity solely focused on supporting people impacted by hoarding behaviour.
