Who we are

Help and support for people affected by hoarding.

HoardingUK is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting people affected by hoarding behaviours.

Our aim is to empower individuals experiencing hoarding behaviours to achieve spatial and personal change to improve their health and wellbeing, to improve practice amongst professionals and to raise awareness and increase understanding.

We were founded in 2008 by Megan Karnes who whilst running another national mental health charity realised that people with hoarding disorder were not being treated the same as people with other mental health disorders. From that activist launch, we are now a multi-service organisation helping thousands of people each year through our services including:

  • National Helpline offering help and advice via text
  • Advocacy
  • Online Support Groups
  • Help with Eviction threats
  • Decluttering
  • Training and Research

Useful tips from those who have a hoarding disorder or another member of their family. 

We also have online support groups and specialised groups for BAME and LBGTQ+

Please visit our website for more information on how to access our services.
