Welcome to

Life-Pod Clutter Management CIC

We help people who are affected by hoarding disorder and other conditions that result in clutter and disorganisation.

We adopt a person-centred approach to creating long-term sustainable behaviour change.

We do not condone enforced clearouts. Our guiding principle is ‘do no harm’.

We recognise and celebrate human diversity and respond with care and compassion to every individual client.

Our story

In 2013, following a successful career as a change and communications manager in 'corporate world', Linda set up Life-Pod - a social enterprise Community Interest Company.

In 2014, after a period of study with The Institute for Challenging Disorganisation, Linda became the UK's only certified Chronic Disorganisation & Hoarding Specialist; an accolade she still holds today.

In 2016, Life-Pod launched a new Joint Award with The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland that provides a national certified learning pathway for hoarding practice.

In 2017, Life-Pod received a National Lottery 'Awards for All' grant that is enabling us to host an international conference in 2018.
