Mid & East Antrim PCSP have been working with community engagement charity Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) to talk about how they can work together to improve community safety.
The charity brings together local community groups and statutory bodies to deliver practical change and the recent ROC Conversation event identified anumber of needs and issues within the community such as isolation, anti-social behaviour and a need for community facilities and volunteers. The next step is moving the talk into action.
ROC Conversation host and Founding Director, Debra Green OBE was impressed by the positive work already taking place in the town. She said: “The ROC Conversation always highlights hidden work taking place in communities as well as showing how easily gaps in provision can be met by existing community groups once they become aware of the need.”
ROC Event Co-ordinator, Keeva Watson, said that 58 guests at the ROC Conversation signed up to be part of ROC Carrickfergus Action Group: “This is a tremendous response by local people who are willing to work together to improve Carrickfergus. We’ll looking forward to moving this talk into action.”
