Carers Centre Tower Hamlets

What does it do?

A Carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

Carers may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. Please note:The term Carer should not be confused with a care worker, home carer or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone.

If you are a Carer, providing unpaid care to someone living in Tower Hamlets, our Carers’ Centre may be able to help make things easier for you. We deliver a wide range of local support services to meet the needs of carers in our community. These range from support services catering for the carer, the needs of the person you care for and those that we
provide on behalf of London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

All Carers have different caring situations & needs and we can assist you with information regarding health issues, entitlements, mobility, grants for holidays, equipment and ongoing support.
