Many people who usually use our services are older and/or have physical health problems, or are heavily pregnant, placing them at extra risk from the virus.
We have continue to provide support to everybody who uses our services. As well as phone calls, video calls, text messages, emails, and limited face to face work, we are providing meal parcels and baby clothes for those in need.
We are still accepting new people into our services through a fast access triage system.
Please do not come to our office or the Healthy Living Centre at this time.
WaterHouse Restaurant is open for tap'n'take breakfasts, lunches and sweet treats, as well as office and event catering. The restaurant continues to provide emergency free meal parcels to people who are too unwell to cook, or who do not have access to safe cooking facilities. The young chefs from Blue Marble Training are supporting the meal preparation in the socially distanced kitchen.
Shoreditch Trust workspaces for social enterprises, small businesses and charities remain open, as many of the tenants in the co-working spaces, studios and offices are carrying out essential work. People using the building are asked to observe NHS advice on Coronavirus. We have shared details of the advice and support available for small businesses with all tenants.
Shoreditch Trust activities at the Healthy Living Centre have been paused, and all external bookings for meeting and activity rooms have been cancelled.
New bookings and rescheduled bookings are being accepted. If you need to contact us about your booking please email email@example.com.
The NHS Maternity Centre at 170 Pitfield Street is still operational.
Hackney has launched a helpline for those affected by Coronavirus, particularly those who are socially isolated and potentially cut off from help. The helpline number is 020 8356 3111 (8am-5pm Monday-Friday).
Hackney Council has produced a map showing organisations across the borough that are open and supporting people at this time e.g. running online classes, making phone calls etc.
