Mind has been funded by Croydon Council to run a hoarding prevention project.
The purpose of the project is to provide free group counselling sessions to participants in order to help them examine why they collect items that clutter the home and what would it be like to consider letting some of these go.
This will be a 6 fortnightly group counselling session plus an hour a week with a De-Clutter Buddy to support clients with the decluttering.
Please phone 020 8763 2064 for more information and/or an information pack.

There will be yoga, manicures, mindfulness, tea & cake and goodie bags.
Come and join us at Fairfield House, 10 Altyre Road, East Croydon, CR0 5LA on Friday 16th June, 1pm-4pm.
