Hoarding Awareness Week – 20th May to 27th May
May 20 @ 1:00 am – May 27 @ 6:00 pm

National Hoarding Awareness Week activities in West Berkshire from 20th to 27th May 2019

 

Jo Cooke, the founder of Tapioca Tidy and co-founder of Hoarding Disorders UK (a community interest company) is giving a series of talks to the NHS and local charities to help raise awareness of the disorder and to fight prejudice about the stigma of hoarding.

Jo estimates that there could be at least 10,000 households in the West Berkshire area who need help and she receives referrals most days. Most hoarders tend to collect newspapers, books, containers, clothes, plastic bags and animals.

Jo and her team lead a free support group meeting which takes place on Thursday, 30th May and on the fourth Thursday of each month from 7pm to 9pm at Broadway House in Newbury. Anyone who is a hoarder or whose life is affected by hoarding is welcome to attend.  Jo has also inspired other support groups around the country to be formed and is instrumental in setting up new groups this year to be launched in Reading, Oxford and Swindon.

National Hoarding Awareness Week also marks the second anniversary of the launch of Jo’s book “Understanding Hoarding”, an expert guide to helping a hoarder.  She will be giving tips and advice from the book on social media throughout National Hoarding Awareness Week.

More information on the week’s events can be found at www.hoardingdisordersuk.org/  or by searching on social media for the hashtag #helpinghoarders
