Hoarding and Squalor workshop
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.
Venue: Federation Offices- Suite 301, 64-76 Kippax St, Surry Hills
