Based in St Hilda’s East Community Centre, this project provides short term and flexible break services to carers within the Bangladeshi and other Asian communities in Tower Hamlets. Carers are able to access respite that meet their personal or family needs by the provision of Day Centre ‘placements’ or domiciliary care for the cared for person. This enables individual carers to receive both invaluable short term respite, often in crisis situations, as well as taking flexible breaks at times when they want or need to do so.

The project also provides information, advice and signposting for carers, running a monthly Carers Support Group called Fursoth (which means ‘take rest’ in Bengali).

St Hilda’s has been working with, and supporting, carers for more than a decade and this innovative project complements its other social care provision.

For further information about Short Term & Flexible Breaks for Carers, email Mainul or telephone 020 7739 8066.

“I was about to have to leave my part time job to look after my mother full time, but St Hilda’s arranged day centre respite for my mother and contacted social services for permanent help. Because of this I was able to keep working and caring.”

“Your service helped me a lot during a very stressful time. I couldn’t have coped without this.”
