Category: Support & Services
We are happy to announce that we have recently secured funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, to run a project titled ‘Healthy People’ to help improve the health and well-being of our Cypriot community in and around Hackney. Within this fantastic project, we will work hard with our service users to improve their health and well-being, through various weekly workshops in which support will be available to stop smoking and maintain a healthier lifestyle. Thanks to this additional funding, we are now open an extra two days during the week, Friday and Saturday, where we will run a weekly blood pressure check for our community. We will be running quarterly health days where we hope to welcome our community to our luncheon club, and part take in our activities and workshops.
This project is available for Hackney Cypriot Association service users. We would like to invite all members of our community to take part in our project, and hope to see you all soon!
We are delighted to introduce our two new welfare support officers, who will be managing this project, Andriana & Dilem.

Need help or advice?
Our services are still available during lockdown. We are providing these over the phone, as it is important that our users and staff are not at risk.
Our dedicated Coronavirus support lines are available for questions on staying safe, accessing support services, what to do if you think you have the virus and how to support your mental health and those around you. We will get back to you with advice
- Turkish 07888 542 631
- Greek 07888 582 495
Please stay indoors and stay safe
Here’s some advice for staying safe:
- Wash your hands with soap or hand sanitiser.
- Wipe down your shopping with sanitising sprays to avoid bringing the virus home from the supermarket.
- Make sure your mask is fitted well and covers your nose. If your nose is not covered, or if there are gaps above your cheeks, you risk being infected or infecting others. If your mask leaves gaps, you can use medical tape to stick it to your face, or wear another mask on top.
- DO NOT REUSE plastic masks.
- Wash cloth masks well with soap after every use.
Please find our Facebook page if you use social media, as key information will also be available there.
If we have given you printed materials with government advice, please read them, and share the advice with your friends and family
We will also be updating our website as the situation unfolds.
