The HS&DR Programme is accepting stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for the following topic:

  • 20/70 Self-neglect in the community

The scope of this call includes self-neglect of all forms, encompassing different manifestations such as hoarding behaviour, squalor and infestation in relation to a variety of underlying conditions such as psychological or psychiatric conditions or cognitive impairment. These may result from any cause e.g. dementia, trauma or learning disability as well as self-neglecting behaviour where the underlying cause is not known. Other conditions may also be considered, such as self-neglect associated with frailty or obesity making it difficult to self-care and keeping the surrounding environment clean.
