A space designed by young people, for young people
In 2017 ROC Café opened its doors as a drop-in for 11-18’s to hang out, unwind and meet new people. It’s in the newly refurbished Undercroft at Wilmslow URC, and was designed in collaboration with local young people who helped shape both the look and feel of the space along with the activities that run in it. It’s staffed by a team of lovely volunteers who are always available for a chat if you need it. You'll find games consoles, art activities, table tennis, lots of good food and plenty of sofas and beanbags to kick back on. It's open for anyone in high school and you can pop in for just a few minutes or stay for the whole time we're open.
We also run a social night on Fridays:
YEAR 7-8: 6:00-7:15pm
YEAR 9-11: 7:45-9:00pm
We operate a drop-in policy at ROC Café, meaning young people are welcome to come and go as they please. We ask that parents/responsible adults fill in a consent form for each young person attending the café.
The ROC Café team are DBS checked and receive annual safeguarding training. All of our activities are run in line with our safeguarding policy. You can view our safeguarding statement here.
