About Us / Mission Statement

Enabling spaces CIC is about serving people and local communities and not about profit. 

This service will improve the health and well-being of people living in communities within Coventry and across the West Midlands region and beyond. 

The fundamental aspect of a social enterprise is to reinvest profits back into the business to enable it to grow and develop. It will also provide support to isolated and disadvantaged vulnerable people to bring about a positive change in their lives and re-engage them within their own family, their environments and the wider communities.

Occupational Therapy Services At a Glance

We’ve loved every minute of our journey


A Bit of Background

The original piloted hoarding service began with a  local social housing landlord based in Coventry.


Yvonne and Jo developed a completely new approach to address clients' with hoarding issues. They were able to implement a client centred approach, as well as promoting the individuals' health and well being.

They were able to use their core OT skills, theory, and the OT  process to guide their work. This enabled them to work therapeutically with the individuals and at best, understand the underlying causes of their hoarding behaviour.

Jo's and Yvonne's interventions and goal planning  are based on the clients’ strengths and areas of occupational dysfunction, therefore giving the individual control of their treatment plan.

This pilot service closed due to funding issues.


An Idea Is Born

Yvonne and Jo wanted to continue the hoarding services, hence with their entrepreneur minds. They took the bold step to set up our own occupational therapy service, Enabling Spaces CIC specialising in Compulsive Hoarding Therapy. 

Yvonne and Jo continue to take a client-centered and holistic approach to hoarding and having first-hand experience of working in this specialist area. They aim to transform people’s lives by providing flexible and responsive support for people with hoarding behaviours. Their approach helps the individual to self-manage their condition, remain independent and live well. It delivers sustainable solutions that:

• Improve mental and physical health

• Reduce social isolation

• Reduce risks to the individual and their community

• Reduce the cost of dealing with hoarding behaviour and its consequences.

We work in Coventry, the West Midlands area, Warwickshire and beyond.

Specialist occupational therapists are helping people with hoarding disorder to declutter

Yvonne Singleton and Jo Dowdeswell spend their days decluttering people’s homes. They clear out piles of magazines, old letters and newspapers, which can reach from the floor to the ceiling, or carrier bags filled to overflowing with used food containers and other kitchen debris
