A Community Engagement Charity
Helping transform our community
ROC Taunton Deane is a registered charity set up in 2019 to run community projects in partnership with other charities, community groups, health and teaching professionals, local authorities, statutory bodies and businesses to improve the lives of those we work with and to build stronger, more vibrant communities.
We are registered with, and regulated by, the Charity Commission of England and Wales.
Current and Proposed Projects
Community Family Mentoring
Since launching this programme in 2019, we have:
Reached and helped many families in the Taunton and Wellington area. Families that have a wide variety of needs in order to see ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’. These needs include housing, social support due to anxieties, guidance with parenting, budgeting or admin strategies, friendship and someone to talk to, and to find opportunities to get out and meet people.

Community Housing for the Homeless
Another need that arose from the ROC Conversion was that of long term homelessness.
Prior the charity being set up, the founding group arranged severe weather respite for roughsleepers, but further plans were put on hold when Covid hit.
The trustees are now working with the local authority and funders with the aim of providing housing to give homeless people security and an opportunity to re-build their lives. More detail will follow as discussions progress.
A huge thanks to the following organisations that have made our work possible:
