Welcome to BowHaven

BowHaven is a local, community based, mental health charity situated in the heart of Tower Hamlets, and a stone’s throw away from the famous Roman Road market. We have been running a successful Mental Health Wellbeing and Recovery Centre since 2003, and our way of working is completely person centred. This means that there is a high level of focus on choice, self-expression, support, opportunity, and positive ownership and responsibility.

Our belief, is that the BowHaven experience is more than just about attending and accessing a service. Instead, it is about being part of a philosophy where authentic recovery and well being is rooted in a sense of belonging, where once clients join they become members of the centre, giving them the scope and ability to influence and shape their environment, in a meaningful way for both themselves and others.

Lovely to spend the afternoon with members at the Tutankhamun exhibition! Very busy there and difficult to take it all in but we all really enjoyed the time together, taking about life and having a good laugh over coffee and cake! https://t.co/wgOz144dfD

Our clothes stall is becoming very popular! Martin found himself a coat & we got a new mannequin! All proceeds go towards our services & we are always looking for quality donations.

We are currently in need of an extra clothes rail if anyone has one going? #MentalHealthAwareness https://t.co/7m7lj7fQoD
