NHS North East London and the City and Thames Reach - The Greenhouse
The Greenhouse is an integrated housing and health walk-in service, engaging those most hard to reach in our local community, who are experiencing homelessness, whilst also falling outside of the priority banding of homelessness. Working in partnership with the City and Hackney Primary Care Trust, they provide users with good quality housing advice and access to health options. They assist individuals giving them advice on how to sustain themselves in the community and encouraging engagement with positive social networks and a move away from a street-based lifestyle. They address the significant needs that have resulted from a period of homelessness such as issues related to physical or mental health and wellbeing.
