Who we are

Poplar HARCA is an award winning Housing and Regeneration Community Association in East London.

We own and manage over 9,000 homes and, with partners, are leading a £2.5bn physical regeneration of Poplar including new homes, education, healthcare, faith buildings, business and workspace and community spaces.

We create opportunities for our community by providing jobs & skills training, volunteering, enterprise support and youth services. Our Community Safety team helps keep the streets safer and we work with local and national organisations to provide green & sustainable initiatives, art & culture, clubs and networks.
