Advisors can help you with a wide range of issues relating to welfare benefits, housing, debt and referrals into training, employment and other health initiatives
Tower Hamlets Health Advice Links
We lead a consortia of grass roots community organisations that deliver advice from GP practices across Tower Hamlets. This is so medical services can focus on medicine – assured that their patients can access advice and support for a wide range of problems that also affect patients health.
Our advisors offer professional advice on welfare, benefits, debt, housing and form filling. They are well networked and able to refer people for specialist legal support and signpost into networks of other ‘social prescribing’ and employability opportunities.
Our approach is person centred. We listen, take a holistic approach and action plan with people. Our advisors can speak a wide range of languages, this includes Bengali, Urdu, Turkish, Kurdish and Chinese. They also ensure culture and faith is understood in the advice process. Our aim it to support people to become more resilient – more able to deal with challenges in the future. We bring hope when people don’t know where to turn.
