Poplar HARCA is an award-winning housing and regeneration community association in east London.

Our purpose

Creating opportunities together that realise community potential through exceptional homes and thriving places, with social justice at our core.

Our story

Our residents voted us into existence 25 years ago. We are led by the needs and aspirations of the community we serve. They’re at the heart of every decision we make and hold us to account.

Today, we own and manage over 10,000 homes and, with partners, we are leading a £2.5bn place-shaping programme including new homes, education, healthcare, faith buildings, business and community spaces.

We invest around £4m each year in community regeneration. That means helping people into work and training, providing state of the art creative spaces for young people, initiatives to improve health and wellbeing, events, networking and affordable workspace.

We have strong and enduring partnerships with like-minded people and organisations. They support our ambitions and help us achieve so much more than we could alone.

We are a proud reflection of our east London community, and over a third of our 350 employees live locally.
