A carer is anyone who provides regular unpaid care to one or more people who cannot manage without their help. This could be due to
physical or mental illness
The role of a carer
A carer provides emotional and practical support, either directly or from a distance. This role as a carer can start and stop at any time.
Friends and family who care for their loved ones play a crucial role in our society. Tower Hamlets Council and its partners are committed to supporting carers caring for someone resident in the borough in their caring role, and ensuring they have a life of their own.
The Proud to Care Rewards Scheme is a member benefit scheme, led by London ADASS, that will help improve the lives of social care workers and unpaid carers and to say a big thank you for the continued hard work.
Whether it’s for birthdays, weddings, engagements or everyday shopping, the scheme offers a range of discounts that can be applied to purchases helping to lighten the load.
