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 who have been distanced from employment due to mental ill-health.

Between 2017 and 2018, we had a total of 14 trainees complete their full 12-week placements with us in the bakery. Since their placements, our trainees have progressed to employment, volunteering or further training and education. 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.
