CHANGE – Compulsive Hoarding Action Group

CHANGE is Compulsive Hoarding Action Group Edinburgh. This is a monthly self-help support group for people affected by compulsive hoarding.

The group meetings will enable you to speak to others affected by hoarding, and share your thoughts and experiences. Each session will cover one particular aspect of hoarding so that you will become well-informed about common reasons for hoarding, sources of help, and successful treatment approaches.

Meetings take place on every first Wednesday of the month from 7.30pm to 9.00pm, at The Royal Edinburgh Hospital. 

CHANGE also aim to raise awareness of hoarding and provide more information about hoarding.
