What does an East End Friend do? (Tower Hamlets only)

East End Friends are offering the lending hand isolated people need by doing check in calls, visits and outings and digital support. They build relationships in the process, which enable meaningful conversations and help to identify support needs and other services and activities that will help maintain their clients’ mental health. A key aim of the role is to signpost or refer clients to other services and activities, initially accompany them, and build their confidence back to get out into the community and to ultimately feel independent again
