Neighbours in Poplar
We'd like to buy tablets and pay for an IT sessional worker. We'd like to help vulnerable older people connect to technology, enabling them to contact family and friends via the digital world.

About this cause
We provide practical support and care for vulnerable and isolated people living in Poplar and the Isle of Dogs. We aim to involve members of our diverse community in working together to create an inclusive society. Our dedicated staff and volunteers provide social and health-based activities; outings; action groups; shopping trips and more. Our services improve the quality of life for our clients.
How this cause brings people in the community together
During the initial lockdown period, we prepared and delivered 3,800 hot dinners to our clients. We also introduced Zoom sessions which enabled clients to virtually interact with each other. We have just introduced online quiz sessions for our clients which they thoroughly enjoy and is something we wish to develop further.
