National Hoarding Conference logo

This year’s conference will be a Hybrid Event combing a “live” in-person event with a “virtual” online platform for remote attendees.



  • For People with Hoarding Behaviour, how this is being assessed and what it would mean if capacity were more specifically considered?
  • For services, as we move towards increased strain on budgets, how can we build appropriate capacity for support-based programmes into our plans?

  • Megan Karnes (Chair/Founder/Director, HUK): USER INVOLVEMENT
  • Dr Satwant Singh (Clinical Director, HUK/IAPT Newham and Waltham Forest): PSYCHOLOGY
  • Julie Wilson (Trainer, HUK/Optivo Neighbourhood Manager): HOUSING PROFESSIONALS
