The Greenhouse Walk-in centre provides free health care services and housing and welfare advice for homeless people in Hackney.
The service is for 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 welcoming centre provides a way to engage with these socially-excluded individuals, who can drop in informally.
The Greenhouse is staffed by advice workers from Thames Reach and medical staff from the City and Hackney Primary Care Trust, including a dedicated nurse-practitioner.
The services provided at the Greenhouse include:
Greenhouse Walk-in sessions are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10am to 12.30pm, with other activities at various times throughout the week.
Drop-in advice service for homeless and vulnerable eastern europeans in Hackney each Thursday 10am-1pm.
The Greenhouse is located at:
19 Tudor Road
Phone: 020 8510 4490.
The project is named after a former use of the site, and also represents new beginnings.
The building also previously housed a St Mungo's hostel, and has now been extensively refurbished to fit its new purpose under the department of Communities and Local Government’s Hostels Capital Improvement Programme.
