Children's social care
Tower Hamlets provides information and advice to parents and carers looking for registered childcare, and childcare out of school hours. We also work closely with Social Services to make sure the welfare and safety of children in the borough is kept as a priority.
Children's services has a responsibility to protect and promote the welfare and safety of children in need.
Residential care for children
The council has two children’s homes, which provide 24 hour care for looked after children. The children's homes provide respite care, shorter term and longer term care.
