How We Started :
Neighbours in Poplar came into being in October 1969, when some concerned people gathered together a large number of senior citizens in Pope John House for a Christmas Party.
Because this was so successful and a need had obviously been met, volunteers began to meet regularly, visiting and providing necessary service for people living in the Poplar area of Tower Hamlets, London E14.
Care in the Community for over 50 years
Multi-Faith Care in the community:
We provide practical support and care for vulnerable people who are living at home, regardless of their faith, age, race, gender, culture, or disability. We also provide disadvantaged children with breaks from their normal environment during the summer holidays.
Neighbours in Poplar's vision is to enable vulnerable people, especially those living alone and often undocumented, to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. We aim to add quality, wellbeing, a sense of independence and meaning to the days of their lives. Helping to reduce isolation and loneliness, where possible by growing a sense of community with the areas we cover.
