Proud of our 11 Years of Promoting Choice and Control!

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

HoardingUK is the only UK-wide charity solely dedicated to supporting people affected by hoarding behaviours.  Our aim is to empower individuals experiencing hoarding behaviours to achieve spatial and personal change, to reduce isolation and improve their health and well-being.  We are a multi-service organisation, helping thousands of people over our ten years of service.  In 2017, for example, we supported over 1,000 new people and professionals through our National Helpline.

We are managed by a Board of Trustees which includes leading specialists in hoarding.

When HoardingUK began its work, hoarding behaviour was largely considered a ‘lifestyle choice’.   Our work, alongside others, has improved understanding but there is still such a long way to go.

Thank you everyday to our Patron Jasmine Harman.

We work with organisations throughout the country to set up and run support group development programmes.
