Everything we do is aimed at creating opportunity. We believe that resident empowerment is more than “getting involved”, it’s working together with people to help them get to where they want to go.
We have a range of volunteering and personal development options throughout our neighbourhoods; from working with young people to maintaining our green spaces, there is something for everyone. We also work with a wide range of partners to provide training, local employment, business advice and support .
We do more than just build houses; together with our residents, we create homes that meet people’s evolving needs, from social to private rent, shared ownership to right to buy.
We are our community. Many staff and Board members are also residents and we take pride in our local area and its fantastic diversity. We help keep Poplar safe, clean and green through our commitment to our neighbourhoods and residents.
We provide welcoming local centres that are home to a huge range of clubs and activities. We also run a whole host of events and activities across Poplar throughout the year, giving locals something new and bringing people from across London and beyond to the area.
Collaboration is key to the long-term success of Poplar HARCA and our community. We pride ourselves on the partnerships we develop and are always keen to meet new organisations and share new ideas.
We are constantly creating opportunities for businesses in the local area, from small businesses and start-ups who can take advantage of the Chrisp Street Exchange and the Enterprise Network to repurposing and optimising spaces to work and play through Open Poplar.
