Carer's assessment

A carer's assessment is for carers aged 18+ old who are looking after another adult, aged 18+, who is disabled, ill or elderly. It is all about you as a carer.

The council can help identify a range of services to help carers manage well and continue in their caring role, including:

  • carer's relief
  • respite
  • one off or regular direct payments.

How it works

It is a chance for you to talk about:

  • how your caring responsibilities affect you
  • how you could do things differently
  • and what support or services are available to help you continue to care.

How to apply

Please contact the Tower Hamlets Carers Centre to arrange a carers assessment.

Next steps

Following a carers assessment, if you meet the eligibility threshold for services, in line with the Care Act 2014, you will be contacted by the council to discuss how you can be supported.
