Neighbours in Poplar
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 services for people living in the Poplar area of Tower Hamlets, London E14.
Our Mission Statement:
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.
