The Environmental Health Directorate has developed the following documents to support Environmental Health Officers and others involved in the management of hoarding and severe domestic squalor.
Hoarding and Severe Domestic Squalor: A Guideline for Western Australia
Hoarding and Severe Domestic Squalor: A Toolkit for Local Government
These documents have been developed through a consultative process with a range of agencies that have a regular involvement with issues of hoarding and squalor. The Environmental Health Directorate will be seeking feedback on the usefulness of the documents and has a strong interest to develop an evidence base (possibly a library of case studies) that may provide stronger and more detailed assistance to those directly involved in managing specific cases of hoarding and domestic squalor.
Please submit any feedback including suggestions for case studies to eh.submissions.
