Local Account magazine is designed to keep you in the know about how council are delivering adult social care in Tower Hamlets, including what they have achieved over the past year and their priorities for the future. They hope you may find this a useful resource.

Over the last year they spent £120 million on care and support, and have achieved some good results. They have seen more people getting direct payments to take control of their care and supported to stay in their own homes, as well as an increase in social contact and shorter waiting times for reablement support. Looking to the future, in 2019 they want to continue this good work and increase the number of service users getting direct payments, further reduce waiting times for care, and work harder to support carers, tackle loneliness and integrate further with NHS colleagues.
