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

We focus on providing homes and support to residents old and new; helping to create a place where people, communities and businesses can grow and thrive. With our partners, we are currently leading an extensive place-shaping programme for Poplar, attracting £2.5 billion investment to regenerate, build and create opportunities.

Vision and values

Our vision is simple: discovering, developing and implementing opportunities to help our community thrive.

  • Constant improvement: This is our ethos. Why we are here. Working to improve everything around us, and to support others to do the same. We provide homes, deliver services, enable regeneration and much, much more. We look to our people and our communities to find better ways and achieve better outcomes.
  • Wholehearted commitment: Getting things done, especially when a different approach is needed, requires determination. We know that there will be anticipated and unanticipated challenges. We calmly and confidently address each situation, and we adjust when we need to.
  • Enthusiastic support: Change is inevitable. Even if it’s for the better it’s not always easy. As a community we are supportive of everyone’s needs. It is important that we are all heard and respected. We are mindful of everyone’s right to have a say, even if sometimes we do not all agree with each other.
