People of goodwill working together for safer, kinder communities.

About Us

ROC’s main aim is to bring about community transformation by creating strategic partnerships between statutory agencies, voluntary groups and churches. These partnerships form new volunteer-led projects that address a variety of social needs.

We have over 120 active partnership projects, and many more at the planning and enquiry stage, meeting a variety of social needs. Could our model help you to reach your community?
