Multi-agency hoarding framework

Developed by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, and signed-off by East Sussex Safeguarding Adults Board, this document sets out a framework for collaborative multi-agency working within East Sussex.

The aim is to ensure that anyone coming into contact or working with someone who is hoarding has an awareness of the tools and resources available to be able to offer help and support.

Adult Social Care will be the lead organisation for hoarding cases where a safeguarding enquiry is being undertaken.  For other circumstances involving adults with care and support needs where hoarding is identified, a decision will be made by the agencies involved as to who is best placed to take the lead.
