ROC Cafe - Crumlin Road

"A Safe, Fun Place for Young People to Come & Build Relationships with Each Other and Receive Support"

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

A ROC café is a safe, fun place where young people can come and build relationships with each other and receive support from positive adult role models.

Regular activities include: sports, drama, art, crafts and indoor games which help improve confidence and self-esteem.

A ROC Café is usually open one night a week, as an after-school or evening club depending on when there is the greatest need, which is often at the weekend.

It is run by local volunteers in partnership with local agencies such as the Police, Fire and Rescue Service and the local Council.

One of the benefits of a ROC Café is that it receives expert input from our partner agencies, which can lead to funding and ensures greater sustainability which allows it to thrive when many youth projects are facing closure.

The Monday night drop-in welcomes over 60 primary school aged children to Crumlin Road Presbyterian Church in North Belfast. The ROC Café aims to develop stronger relationships with the children and their families as well as providing a safe environment for all to learn, play and grow. The children enjoy a variety of activities including arts and crafts, football, games, board games, pool tables and a tuck shop. Last year ROC Café Crumlin Road partnered with Barnardo’s Northern Ireland to improve children’s numeracy and literacy. Barnardo’s staff and ROC Volunteers led two programmes – ‘Awesome Science’ programme for Key Stage 2 members and ‘Pirates Ahoy’ literacy and numeracy programme for Key Stage 1 members.
