Day centres

What do day centres provide?

Day centres, or day services, provide support to adults and older people who have had a Care Act assessment. They are primarily building-based services in Tower Hamlets. They are located in accessible buildings with trained staff who can support individuals in meeting a range of needs. 

Attending a day service can provide an opportunity to reduce social isolation, engage in a range of purposeful activities or interest groups that are designed to promote independence and wellbeing.

Who is eligible?

To attend a day centre, you must be assessed by Adult Social Care.

Once it is established that someone has eligible needs for care and support, a plan is drawn up that confirms how those needs and the outcomes that an individual might want to achieve, will be met.

What else do I need to know?


Support with getting to the day services can be provided where it is not possible for someone to use public transport or attend with assistance from family or friends.

Meals and refreshments

There is provision for meals and refreshments, for which a charge is payable.
