The Sheffield Mind Magpies service, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, supports people who have difficulties with hoarding. This service was launched early in 2021 and it builds on the foundations of an earlier project which we ran in partnership with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

Our Project Workers support service users to look at lifestyle, explore the reasons that might be behind their hoarding histories and look at ways of changing behaviour. Through one-to-one and group support, people can access practical advice and input to address their home conditions and other difficulties that often accompany hoarding behaviour, such as social isolation.

Please note that there is a high demand for the service and as a result, we are currently not able to accept any referrals to the service for 1-to-1 or CBT support. However, if you would like to know more about group support, or if you have any queries about the service, you can call 0114 258 4489 or email [email protected]
