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:

  • National Helpline,
  • Advocacy
  • Information Packs
  • a one-to-one in-home Support Service
  • a free Benefits Support Service

We also have a national training programme for professionals and organisations including our award nominated (Chartered Institute of Housing/Inside Housing) psychological support groups. We host our National Hoarding Conference each year and we also have a presence via social media and contribute to the professional debate and to public understanding by means of free talks and seminars.

We receive hundreds of referrals to our services from the NHS, public, private and voluntary sectors using our integrated model of support. We are managed by a Board of Trustees and our work, alongside others, has been instrumental in changing the perception of hoarding disorder.
