Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) Conversation Trafford – Wed 19th November 2014
What is a ROC Conversation?
A community consultation event in Trafford
Redeeming Our Communities (ROC) is bringing together key contributors from across Trafford to discuss a collective vision for the area. The purpose behind the evening is to both celebrate the great work going on in Trafford and to discuss dreams and aspirations for the community and then help to put these into practice. The programme will include time for round-table discussions and feedback. These evenings have proven to be an incubator for ideas to be expressed and projects to be born. What ideas might you bring to the table? What will make the difference in OUR community?
One of the main focusses of the evening will be around the ROC Restore project launch in Trafford.
ROC Restore is a form of Restorative Justice (RJ) undertaken to turn dreams into reality. The aim is to bring together victims and perpetrators of low-level crime, anti-social behaviour and nuisance in a meeting where trained volunteers use restorative or reparative approaches to agree on a course of action for those involved.
"Building strong and effective partnerships between our police, councils, other agencies and - most importantly of all - local people is the key to transforming our communities and making them safer and stronger. ROC's innovative work in this field has been exemplary and shows what can be achieved when people and organisations come together with a vision and passion to make a difference."
Tony Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner, Greater Manchester
