Coronavirus information

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and the ‘social distancing’ guidance issued by the government, we have needed to reduce and adapt the usual face-to-face support that we provide so we can keep our service users and staff safe.

We will continue to talk with you and help you even if coming into our service isn’t possible.

To check what support is currently available and if there are any changes to our opening times, please contact us on the details below and we’ll do our best to make sure you still get the help you need.


Hackney Recovery Service is a a fully integrated, recovery-focused service delivered by WDP in partnership with Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) and St Mungo's in the London Borough of Hackney.

Our service is free and open to all Hackney residents aged 18 or over, as well as their families and carers. When you come in you will be able to talk to one of our Duty Recovery Workers, who will help you decide what treatment would best benefit you.

Once we have completed an assessment and know more about you and your needs, our team will work with you to create a recovery plan tailored to your individual needs and aspirations. We will regularly review this with you and adjust the plan to make sure you always receive the appropriate support at the appropriate time.

We also offer services to your family members and loved ones so that they can receive some support and advice on how best to support you during your recovery.
