"Connecting Local People to Build a Safer, Kinder Community"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

ROC (Redeeming Our Communities) Dawlish is a fresh new way to link up local 'people of goodwill'. Working together like this we can get things done to build a safer, kinder community.

It's not an organisation or another committee, but an inclusive action group that's open to new people who are willing to collaborate with charities, local churches and public agencies to bring about social transformation for the benefit of local people.

Safer, Kinder Communities

ROC’s mission is to increase community resilience by inspiring and supporting groups to work together.

ROC achieves this by:

Connecting local community members, volunteers & statutory agencies
Celebrating all the good things taking place in our community
Raising awareness of the current needs of our community
Exploring potential solutions and resources required to meet current needs
Creating a network of people passionate about improving our community
Identifying & utilising existing skillsets and resources in our community
Kick-starting new projects in our community

ROC is now established with projects in many towns and cities in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.

ROC partnerships are formed between local community groups, statutory agencies and churches. This is what makes our work unique and sustainable.


A Few Words from Debra Green OBE, Executive Director & Founder of ROC

Sometimes the need we see around us is overwhelming and we may even feel that our contribution could make little difference.  However, as Edmund Burke said “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” and this is why we want to redeem communities across the UK.

In 1994 as I reflected on the needs of the city of my birth I wrote these words:

"In our dreams and visions we see crime rates dropping, violence decreasing, drug dealers disappearing, prostitution declining and apathy diminishing.  We see business booming, housing improving, schools flourishing and hope rising".

We have seen all these things in some measure and the work we do has spread across the UK, but there is still so much more we can do together to build safer, kinder communities for the sake of the next generation.
