The Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers UK was founded in 2004 in response to a growing nationwide interest in clutter-free living. Our founders recognised that it was difficult for people to know where to find decluttering help, and that professionals in the decluttering and organising industry needed their own UK association.
As our network has grown, and the organising industry develops its services and skills, apdo-uk continues to work on behalf of our members to raise awareness, provide resources and advice, and advertise on their behalf.
Apdo-uk aims to:
- make it easy for people throughout the UK to find a professional organiser
- promote the benefits of a clutter-free, organised lifestyle
- provide a focal point for our members and offer them support to develop and grow their businesses
