Keith’s story: a personal and touching film about hoarding
The Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board has produced a film to raise awareness of hoarding and to guide professionals on what kinds of interventions seem to work the best so that the people affected (both the person who hoards and other people whose lives this impacts upon) get the support that they need.
The film tells Keith’s story, in his own words, describing how hoarding affected his life and, with the right support, his journey to recovery. Professionals (fire officers, social workers and mental health staff) talk about the challenges hoarding can present and approaches that can help support recovery.
The film is available to watch on the Birmingham Safeguarding Adults Board’s YouTube channel.
