HoardingUK is an organisation committed to increasing choice and control for people who compulsively hoard. Established in 2008, HoardingUK has provided help and support for people who hoard, family, friends, neighbours, professionals and the media all on a voluntary basis. We are committed to non-profit ideals and only started charging for our training this year! This decision was made because we feel that the work of the organisation is too important to stay as small as we currently are.

Megan Karnes, founder, will celebrate her 50th birthday by walking the entire distance of the Thames Path (184 miles/294km) in an effort to raise funds for the purchase of a database that is fit for purpose. We need to be able to show funders the impact of our work. We're asking for you support to do this.

We're also asking you to support our values which include focused, individualised support on a not for profit basis. We're here for systemic change that can only be achieved by involving people who hoard, increasing understanding, improving mental health support, reducing stigma, and stopping the vicious ineffective cycle of blitz clean, punitive actions and eviction that are so common.

HoardingUK is about improving outcomes for everyone impacted by it. No one is supported effectively in regard to this problem...not the person, not those around the person, not professionals trying to help the person. We've been there and have made a difference, please help us do more.
