Empowering Senior Management and Policy Makers in Public Health and Housing Organisations

In the ever-evolving landscape of public health and housing organisations, the role of senior management and policymakers is of paramount importance. These leaders are responsible for shaping the future, driving positive change, and ensuring the well-being of the communities they serve.


To enhance their ability to make informed decisions, it is crucial that they stay updated on legislation, policy setting, procedures, and safeguarding practices. In this article, we aim to inspire senior management and policymakers in public health and housing organisations to join our quarterly online Zoom discussions around Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding Behaviours in homes across Northern Ireland.


These sessions provide a unique opportunity to exchange insights, collaborate with peers, and find cost-effective solutions to prevent more homes becoming hoarded.

The need for Informed Decision-Making in

Public Health and Housing Organisations


In Northern Ireland the HSC and the NI Housing Executive, plus other Housing Associations are constantly required to adapt and innovate when it comes to supporting people in maintaining their homes.


Senior management and policymakers need to maintain a high level of knowledge regarding the most recent legislative changes, emerging policies, and evolving procedures in order to make judgments that are effective. If they choose to disregard this essential component of their jobs, it may result in lost opportunities, compliance problems, and an inability to successfully serve the communities they are responsible for.


Legislation and Policy Updates:

The legal framework around Hoarding Disorder as a Mental Health condition is continually evolving. Self-neglect (Diogenes Syndrome) often presents with multiple other physical and mental health issues or co-morbidities that may have implications under The Mental Capacity Act (2005) and The Care Act (2014) and Article 8 of The Human Rights Act (1998).


Self-neglect may become a safeguarding issue under The Care Act 2014 which gives rise to statutory responsibilities by multiple agencies. Staying abreast of these legislative changes is not only a responsibility but a necessity. The consequences of failing to do so can be dire, leading to non-compliance, legal disputes, and reputational damage. Our quarterly online Zoom discussions provide a platform to delve into the latest legislative updates and their implications.


By participating in these sessions, senior management and policymakers can influence and adapt organisational policies in real time to align with new legislation, ensuring that their organisations remain in good standing with the law.



Effective Policy Setting:

Policy setting is at the core of public health and housing organisations' operations. Policies define the organisation's values, expectations, and commitments to its users. They serve as the blueprint for decision-making, governance, and the allocation of resources. Therefore, it is vital that senior management and policymakers possess the skills and knowledge to create and update policies effectively.


Our quarterly Zoom discussions offer a collaborative environment where senior leaders can discuss the challenges faced in Northern Ireland with people experiencing Self-Neglect, Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding Behaviours. In these meeting we discuss the , challenges, and best practices in policy development. Engaging with peers who have faced similar policy-setting hurdles can lead to more streamlined and effective policy creation, ultimately benefiting both the organization and the public it serves.



Streamlined Procedures:

Procedures serve as the operational backbone of the organisation. They dictate the manner in which decisions are carried out, the distribution of resources, and the performance of assigned responsibilities. This is especially important when dealing with cases of Self-neglect or Hoarding in a multi-agency response. Maintaining one's familiarity with the most recent developments in operational practices is absolutely necessary for maximising one's productivity and effectiveness.


The Zoom meetings that we have on a quarterly basis serve as a forum for evaluating and enhancing procedures to promote a more cohesive approach to tackling Self-neglect and Hoarding in Northern Ireland.


Safeguarding the Community:

The safety and well-being of the community served by public health and housing organisations are of paramount importance. Safeguarding practices, therefore, play a critical role in the decision-making process. Senior management and policymakers must be well-versed in the latest safeguarding policies and best practices to ensure that the community remains protected.


Through our quarterly Zoom discussions, senior leaders can collaborate with experts and peers to strengthen their organisations' safeguarding practices. These sessions are an opportunity to share experiences, explore innovative solutions, and establish safeguards that stand up to scrutiny.
