Welcome to the Carers Centre Tower Hamlets

Important Notice

Dear Carers and Colleagues

We would like to inform you that due to the current national Covid-19 outbreak, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily cancel all face-to-face appointments and group sessions. We are doing this following guidance to work from home and social distance where possible.

Our staff will be working remotely so that we can continue to provide a service and will be carrying out appointments by phone. Please note that staff are unable to access their direct lines so please contact us via the main office number only 0207 790 1765.

We will operate reduced hours to ensure the continuation of vital services, there will be no extended opening on Wednesday evening or on Saturdays.

We will be in touch regularly as the situation changes in line with local authority guidance, our focus will be to establish full face to face service delivery as soon as is safe to do so.

The safety and wellbeing of our Carers and staff is our primary focus during this difficult time.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Carers Centre Team

You are our kind of carer if you provide regular unpaid and substantial support to someone living in Tower Hamlets. You don’t have to be living in the same household. They could be a family member, a partner, friend or neighbour who can’t manage without you. This could be because of physical illness, frailty, disability, mental ill health or because of alcohol or drugs addiction or misuse.

Anyone can become a carer at any time, at almost any age. As many as 3 in 5 people will be carers at some point in their lives.

Who cares?

If this sounds like you, you are probably an unpaid carer and we care.

Register as a carer with The Carers Centre Tower Hamlets to access support and services at The Carers Centre and beyond

Take the first three steps to the help you need

  1. register with us at The Carers Centre if you haven’t done this already
  2. complete a Carer’s Assessment with us. This establishes your needs as a Carer
  3. then if more support is necessary we can refer you to Adult Social Care for a Support Plan – a gateway to more help

We find that no two caring roles and no two carers are the same. Carers Centre Tower Hamlets personalises our support to you. We help you to have a life outside of caring. We enable you to keep on caring if that is what you want. We help you stop caring if that is what you need.
