Asian and Somali elder schemes

We have two specialist sheltered housing schemes, Mosque Tower and Bustaan Radaa, housing Asian and Somali elders.

These schemes reflect the needs of the community and are allocated to people over the age of 55.

Older people choose these schemes to benefit from living in a like-minded community with a scheme coordinator on hand to support them overcome any language or cultural barriers.

Our BAME schemes are hubs for our wider cultural programme where we celebrate events, such as Eid and Black History Month.

These events are designed to be inclusive and welcoming. Residents across all of our sheltered housing value these opportunities to celebrate the diverse nature of Tower Hamlets and enjoy new experiences.
