Revised Self-neglect and Hoarding Strategy published

Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) has published its revised Self-neglect and Hoarding Strategy (2.0)

This revised strategy aims to be part of the growing work around early intervention and preventative agendas. As such it directs collaborative multi-agency discussions of self-neglect and/or hoarding cases to the Early Help Hubs (EHH). To encourage a more preventative approach to cases of self-neglect and/or hoarding, the trigger point for taking a case to the EHHs is level 2 (image 4 upwards) on the Clutter Image Rating Scale (CIRT), please see the strategy for more details. 

Published alongside the strategy is a Practitioners Guide. This slim guide is intended as a toolkit to support practitioners from a range of agencies with management of cases where an adult is deemed to be at risk due to self-neglecting and/or hoarding behaviours. 

The Practitioners Guide includes:

  • The Clutter Image Rating Scale (CIRT)
  • Assessment Tool Guidelines
  • Guidance for practitioners
  • Guidance questions which could be used during an assessment
  • Hoarding self assessment form
