What is The ROC Garden Project
Transforming gardens, transforming lives.
Often due to physical incapacity of tenants on benefits who can face eviction for breach of tenancy conditions
Many of our volunteers are classed as “unemployable” due to a lack of training/experience and personal challenges such as addiction. 80% of them gain paid employment thanks to the training and experience they receive.
Currently based in Blackpool and expanding into surrounding areas of Lancashire, ROC Garden addresses two specific needs which are common across the UK.
We work in partnership with local housing organisations who fund our training programme and also commission our teams to work on “void properties” to prepare for incoming tenants.
We also provide services for those who can afford them and this allows us to pay living wage salaries and covers our warehousing, plant and machinery costs.
I have regular garden maintenance from ROC. They started coming when my garden was overgrown and unmanageable and now maintain every 2 weeks. They are always polite and friendly and I love the ethics of the compny too. Would 100% recommend
Absolutely excellent as always. They don’t waste time and get the job done. Clean up after themselves and take away the rubbish. They also always take time out to ask you how you are doing and honestly care about the answer. You couldn’t possibly find a better team, hardworking and caring
