We provide in house training to housing associations, health and social care teams within local authorities and other service providers, charities and agencies who are involved with people affected by hoarding and chronic disorganisation.
One council ran the training for their housing officers, local environmental health, fire officers and local police, this was a huge success and although they already deal with these issues they found the training “very Informative and useful”.
“The hoarding awareness training delivered by Jo and Paul has had a big impact on my team. The content was relevant and interesting but more importantly the trainers were interested to hear how the topic related to our working lives and as a result the training felt like was designed around us. It didn’t feel passive and we came of the session feeling like there were simple actions we could take that would benefit the people we work with. It was also a fun and engaging day – I can’t remember the last time I sat through a day’s training and thought ‘that went quick!'”
“I would (and have already) recommended the training to a number of people – colleagues working in social prescribing, social work, housing and environmental health but also in the voluntary and community sector. After the training, and thanks to the top tips and do’s and don’ts, it really felt that if we join up and take our time there is something we can all do to tackle something we worry about.”
