Please note that since the Covid – 19 crisis we are offering a hybrid service of visiting clients at home where possible, and telephone befriending.

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

Arnold & Porter


The Henry Smith Charity

City Bridge Trust

Shearman & Sterling (London) LLP

Field Family Charitable Trust

Jubilee Fun!

We all enjoyed celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend – some THFN clients were able to attend a tea party whilst others celebrated at local street parties and in their homes. The events were all a huge success and it was lovely how they brought the community together.



Tower Hamlets Covid Community Champions

We are delighted to have been given a Covid Community Champions award.





All THFN staff are 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. Please contact us if we can help.





THFN Befriending Report

It also highlights the challenges befriending faces in these difficult times. The report can be viewed or downloaded by clicking here.
