Monday 19 May 2014 is the start of the first UK Hoarding Awareness Week. A week that the Chief Fire Officer’s Association (CFOA) and members of the campaign planning group, including Orbit’s Compulsive Hoarding Project, has dedicated to raising awareness of Compulsive Hoarding. The aims include dispelling some of the myths and stereotypes surrounding hoarding and raising awareness of hoarding facts amongst key strategic partners.
The campaign was launched on Wednesday 14 May and was hosted by Jim Fitzpatrick MP, at the House of Commons, and attended by Orbit and Foundations CEO Andrew Chaplin.
