ABOUT US

 

Carers Centre Tower Hamlets provides information, advice, independent advocacy, training and a wide range of other support services to people looking after someone who lives in Tower Hamlets.  These people are unpaid Carers and many do not know it.

 

You are a Carer if you provide regular unpaid and substantial support to family, a partner, friend or neighbour who could not manage without your help. This could be because of physical illness, frailty, disability, mental ill health or substance addiction and misuse.

 

Anyone can become a Carer at any time in their life. Every day in the UK 6,000 people take on a caring responsibility.  3 in 5 people will be Carers at some point in their lives.

 

We find that no two caring roles are the same and no two Carers are the same. We support Carers through offering a wide range of services to support Carers to have a life outside of caring and enable them to keep caring.

 

 

We offer social activities, opportunities to meet with other local Carers, relaxation sessions for some ‘me time’ and practical advice and information.

 

We are here for any Carer needing urgent support or just a friendly chat with someone who understands the challenges and difficulties you face. Please come to drop-in to the Carers Centre anytime on;

Monday & Tuesday – 9.30am – 5pm

Wednesday – 9.30am – 8pm

Thursday & Friday – 9.30am – 5pm

Friday – 9.30am – 5pm

MESSAGE FROM THE CARERS CENTRE TEAM

 

We know that for many unpaid carers fulfilling their caring roles can often be a highly stressful time – and one which can be fraught with worry and frustration while simultaneously rewarding.

 

We are always here to listen to each and every carer’s experience and do everything we can to lighten the stress, getting you the right benefits and other financial support - and putting you, the carer, first.

 

Carers become socially isolated by their caring role and they often tend to be so busy caring that they overlook the importance of caring for themselves. We prioritise carers' health and wellbeing, to give them a break and some respite so that they enjoy a life outside caring. We help to make sure carers can continue in their caring role.
