This role involves making a friendly 30-min call every week to an isolated and lonely member of our community. Calls are made remotely and based around the schedule's of both parties. The calls are completely informal and not script-based, so allow a natural relationship to blossom amongst Befriender and Befriendee. This project runs for 6 months and there is an option of meeting with your Befriendee in person if that's something both parties would enjoy.

Full training is provided via ZOOM beforehand and we will check in with volunteers regularly to make sure everything is running well.

Mission Statement

Our Purpose: Creating opportunities together that realise community potential through exceptional homes and thriving places with social justice at our core. Our residents voted us into existence over 20 years ago. We are led by the needs and aspirations of the community we serve. They are at the heart of every decision we make and hold us to account. 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.


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