Hoarding and Squalor Workshop
Fri. 24 March 2017, 9:30 am – 2:30 pm
Australian research estimates more than 600,000 people (2.6% of the population) may suffer from hoarding disorder. Depending on the extent of the situation, these people and their families may be at risk of squalor, health issues, fire hazards, eviction, homelessness, mental health issues and social isolation.
This training workshop explores the nature of hoarding and squalor and explores approaches for community housing providers to consider as they strive to effectively support people to address issues associated with hoarding and/or squalor.
The workshop will explore:
- What is hoarding and squalor?
- The law and hoarding
- Exploring ways to work with people affected by hoarding and squalor
The training will include group activities and discussions.
Participants will receive a training manual.
