National Hoarding Conference

National Hoarding Conference 2019

Early Bird Tickets On Sale 1st January 2019!


After the massive success of the first UK National Hoarding Conference, our team decided that we wanted to spend 2019 expanding the dialogue and engaging in more localised discussions in order to drive our positive change agenda forward.  We’ll be hosting three smaller conferences (Wales: July 2019, Scotland: October 2019 – TBC)

This year, we’ve decided that the panel, including people with hoarding behaviour and family members, will sit throughout the day, feeding into all discussions.   To improve networking, we’re going to bring people from all areas together instead of breaking out into workshops.  We, as last year, are limiting presentation time to allow more time for engaged, proactive conversations.

Our panel currently includes:

  • Heather Matuozzo (Chair, HUK) – PARTNERSHIP WORKING
  • Dr Satwant Singh (Clinical Director, HUK) – PSYCHOLOGY
  • Julie Wilson (Trainer, HUK/Optivo Housing Manger) – HOUSING PROFESSIONALS
  • Ellis Turner (Bristol University Lecturer) – ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
  • Megan Karnes (Founder/Director, HUK) – USER INVOLVEMENT, LEGAL/ADVOCACY-TBC.
