The ROC Café is a safe fun place for young people in secondary school to go in the evening, which provides entertaining and healthy activities. It also gives them the chance to meet positive role models who can offer encouragement and friendship.

Opening hours are timed to help reduce anti-social behaviour and ROC Brinnington opens from 6 – 7.30pm on a Friday evening for that reason .

The ROC Café is run by volunteers from Brinnington Community church, as well as from the community in general .

One aim of ROC Café Brinnington then is to provide fun in a safe location with activities that counteract boredom and keep young people occupied.

Here this means pool, table tennis, Xbox games (non violent!), table football, crafts and just chilling in the café area with cold drinks and something to eat. (certain things are provided free as well as the option to buy from the not-for-profit tuck shop)

We also have the use of the Lapwing Centre at 7-8pm most Fridays; taking a group across each week to play football and learn new skills.

The ROC Café is a multi-agency effort and we have been very well supported in a number of ways, including financial grants, from various organisations including GMP, Stockport Homes, Community Safety Unit, The Neighbourhood Management Team, and Life Leisure.

ROC wouldn’t be the success it is today without all your help and we are grateful on behalf of the kids for you all. Thank you.

All volunteers undergo an interview and appropriate DBS checks

Future of ROC

We are actively recruiting new volunteers from the church network and the local community. Could this be you? Or someone you know?

Experience working with or parenting young people is obviously an advantage but anyone who has a desire to see their community improved by giving time and energy to the teenagers of Brinnington is welcome to apply.
