Are you over the State Pension Age?
Are you getting Pension Credit?
Pension Credit provides extra retirement income if you’re on a low income,
but one in three people who are entitled to it don’t claim it!
If you’re one of them, you could be missing out on over £3,300 of extra income a year.
Did you get your extra £300 Cost of Living Payment?
Call us on 0207 5310190 we will arrange a benefit check!
Testimony from Deputy Mayor who visited us in December 2022
"I had the pleasure of attending Neighbours in Poplar’s 2022 Christmas party at St. Matthias Community Centre. It was an afternoon of festive cheer and joy as I helped to serve a Christmas lunch to guests and enjoyed some brilliant entertainment. Throughout the afternoon I spoke with residents, staff and volunteers and learned more about the variety of programmes and events taking place. The dedication and work of staff and volunteers at Neighbours in Poplar is invaluable in supporting older residents in Tower Hamlets, helping to reduce isolation and loneliness, and creating a strong sense of belonging and community for local residents."
