It means they get “as little or as much help” from Tower Hamlets social services as they need to buy’ personalised support that’s suited to them.
“This puts residents in the driving seat,” explained Dr Anwara Ali, the local authority’s Lead member for adult welfare services. “It’s to give people the chance to take control of their own lives.”
The social care reorganisation involves the council working with community groups, NHS Tower Hamlets, private companies and voluntary organisations.
