The Greenhouse centre provides free healthcare, housing and welfare support and advice for homeless people in Hackney.

Experts from Thames Reach, Hackney council and the NHS work alongside each other, under one roof, as the Single Homeless Hub - the first multi-purpose resource and advice centre for homeless people in London.

The centre offers a welcoming environment to socially excluded men and women who are sleeping rough, have a drug or alcohol problem, poor mental health, or who are simply struggling to keep a roof over their head.

The services provided at the Greenhouse include:

  • full health assessments
  • GP registration
  • TB screening
  • housing advice
  • welfare and benefits support
  • help with access to employment, training and volunteering
  • specific advice for EU nationals, including translation services
  • legal advice for people registered at the medical practice on Thursdays
  • links to other support services

Please drop-in to the Greenhouse for an appointment. Advice sessions are booked on a first come first served basis so it is advisable to arrive early


Opening hours for housing: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9am-5pm. Wednesdays - closed.


The Greenhouse is located at:


19 Tudor Road
