About Us

Better Health Bakery is a social enterprise bakery based in Haggerston, East London. We are part of The Centre for Better Health, a long standing Hackney-based mental health charity. We offer trainee placements in our bakery to adults recovering from mental ill-health. Our placements provide experience in a commercial bakery.

You can read more about our trainee placements here.

We produce an Annual Report to share the results of our work here at the charity but also that of Better Health Bikes next door and the Community Hub and Counselling services at our other site on Darnley Road, Hackney.

Read our latest Annual Report for 2018 here.

You can buy our bread and other products from the cafe and shop right in front of our bakery where you can see the bakers hard at work!
