What is Roc Café?
A ROC Café is an initiative of Redeeming Our Communities - a multi-agency youth meeting place to provide diversionary activity for young people. They work well in areas with significant reports of anti-social behaviour or where there are insufficient activities for young people. A ROC Café is a great opportunity for joined-up work between local community groups, churches, the police, fire service, schools, local council and others agencies to provide a youth focused project that can have a significant impact on a community. The ROC Café has a significant track record in reducing crime.
ROC Cafés are already proving successful in towns and cities across the UK – they’re easy to start, fun to run and play a vital part in community transformation. Click on the "Redeeming Our Communities" logo above for more information.
