Welcome to the Carers Centre Tower Hamlets
As we move into another national lockdown the Carers Centre will unfortunately not be able to offer face to face appointments and staff will be working from home as of Wednesday 6th January.
Our service remains open and staff are available over the phone or email, carers can call us on 0207 790 1765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are here to support carers; if you need a Carers Assessment, Info & Advice, Advocacy, Benefits Advice or PPE we will do this over the phone, Zoom or email and we continue to provide our comprehensive range of Groups and Activities!
You can find all our activities, training and groups on our Calendar, along with joining instructions.
You can keep up to date with our weekly Carers Action Blog
Our monthly E- Bulletin contains a wealth of information on opportunities for carers, training, consultations and activities.
We will resume face to face support as soon as it is safe to do so, until then keep safe, follow government guidance and know that Carers Centre is here to support unpaid carers through these turbulent times.
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.
