ROC Northern Ireland
Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) launched in Northern Ireland in May 2012. Since then, we have ‘empowering people of goodwill to work together for safer, stronger, kinder communities’ in communities across Northern Ireland.
Our Northern Ireland office is based in The Vine Centre in North Belfast. There are 11 multi-agency ROC Action Groups.
These Action Groups were formed following ROC Conversations enabling the talk to move into action. Each group is locally-led with representatives from churches, community and voluntary sector groups, schools and statutory agencies as well as local residents, who passionate about community transformation through partnership working.
Long-term projects help reduce needs in local communities, we currently have projects supporting young people, families and those later in life.
- ROC Café youth project in Rathfern Newtownabbey
- ROC Care Rathcoole befriending scheme
- ROC Tele-Mentors schemes for families in Ballysillan and Larne
- School uniform projects in Ballybeen, Ballysillan and West Belfast
We are grateful to the many volunteers and partners who give their time every week to our Action Groups and projects.
