Community and day centres

The council has several day centres in the borough. They assist in supporting people to live their lives at home and within the community. 

Referrals to a day centre centre can be made following an assessment where a need was identified at a certain level for social, cultural and community support. This also covers practical assistance with personal care and respite for informal carers.

All directly provided day services operate from 9am to 5pm on weekdays with two sessions each day.

In order to access these centres you will need an assessment which can be arranged through Tower Hamlets Connect.
