Safeguarding Adults Week: our focus on self-neglect and hoarding behaviour

During Ann Craft Trust Safeguarding Adults Week (21-27 November), our self-neglect and hoarding subgroup ran three short virtual sessions focusing on practical approaches to self-neglect and hoarding in light of the current cost of living crisis as well as system pressures.  These were available for anybody to sign up to.

This was the third event that the subgroup has held over the past year or so, looking at the different aspects of self-neglect and hoarding behaviour and the challenges that it brings -  to the individual, their family/friends, their community and those professionals who try and support them.

Following the sessions some short briefings have been created, one for each of the three areas covered.  You can read more about the sessions themselves and access the briefings on our dedicated webpage.
