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

Our purpose is simple... creating opportunities which support our people, community and businesses to grow and thrive.

With our partners, we are currently leading an extensive place-shaping programme for Poplar and Bow to regenerate, build and create opportunities in the local area.

We can offer support and advice to groups who are running crowdfunding campaigns that will benefit our residents in and around Poplar and Bow. 

If you would like to discuss your project with us, please email Caroline on Caroline.Murray@poplarharca.co.uk.

Previous projects we have been involved in include:

  1. Chrisp Street Community Cycles - a space where people are supported on their journey into cycling. We provide free bike loans, repairs & upcycling, as well as sessions to improve cycle skills and confidence.
  2. Aberfeldy Boxing Club - a community led club, providing a safe environment for children, young people and wider community to come together to get fit, whilst addressing gang activity & knife crime.

  3. Making Space in Poplar - a project to get people off their mobile phones and to start creating. From glassmaking and ceramics to food or mask-making, local people are working safely together indoors and out at a newly refurbished bespoke Covid-era space.
