THCH and Poplar HARCA end partnership talks

Following extensive discussions, Poplar HARCA and THCH have decided not to progress the proposed partnership.

Anita Khan, CEO of THCH said: ‘While this decision hasn’t been easy, it’s been made with our residents’ best interests in mind. Our goal remains to improve the services we provide and invest more into residents’ homes and communities.’

Steve Stride, Poplar HARCA’s CEO said: ‘We are obviously disappointed, as we firmly believe in the benefits a merger could bring to residents, and also both businesses.’

Both organisations remain committed to collaborating in the future to provide residents with the best possible services and remain committed to work together to address the housing challenges in Tower Hamlets.
