Tower Hamlets (Compass Safe East)

A free, confidential health and wellbeing service for children and young people who need support around drug and alcohol use and/or sexual health. The service works with anyone who lives or studies in Tower Hamlets up to the age of 19 (up to 25 if you are in care, have special educational needs or a disability). Our aim is to help you make decisions where you feel you are in control of your health and wellbeing.

We listen to young people and help them to feel welcome and comfortable when they access our services. You have the right to attend services that are friendly, confidential, non-judgemental and treat you with respect. We do not tolerate any forms of discrimination at Safe East.

Appointment required.  Pleas call us on 020 3954 0091 to book an appointment. You could also bring along a friend if you need them to support you but occasionally you may need to be seen alone by one of our health and wellbeing nurses or workers depending on what your needs are.
