Hoarding and Squalor

Over the past few years there has been an increased awareness of clients that are living in severe domestic squalor and/or hoarding environments. In 2015 Partners in Recovery funded Housing Justice to:

  • identify local referral and intervention processes and develop web based resources
  • provide training to mental health and community service workers
  • and provide information sessions to carers.

Web resources

Hoarding Resources in the Loddon Mallee Region offers mental health and community workers:

  • A Referral Pathways flowchart, which includes steps for assessment, local services referral and joint planning based on geographical areas
  • Links to existing hoarding and squalor Tools & References
  • Access to Training Materials
