Please note that during the Covid – 19 crisis we re no longer visiting clients at home, but are accepting referrals for telephone befriending.

We would like to thank some of our new sponsors who are helping THFN transform the lives of the housebound older community in Tower Hamlets:

THFN is pleased to be continuing our partnership with GoodGym Tower Hamlets – we already have a number of coaches being visited by runners and look forward to many more joining them. If you like to run and want to befriend an older person or help a project in your community why not get involved at

We are proud to announce that all THFN staff are now Dementia Friends Champions!

We have always been committed to supporting and advocating for people in Tower Hamlets living with dementia, and now with Tower Hamlets Alzheimer’s Society we will continue to encourage others to make a positive difference to people living with dementia in their community. We can do this by giving them and everyone in the community information about the personal impact of dementia, and what they can do to help.
