We asked young people attending the ROC Cafe sessions to describe their experience in one word. The top five words used were: “Fun, Friends, Safe, Kind, and Accepting”. We offered the ROC Café provision in line with the project proposal, with young people able to socialise with friends, enjoy refreshments and engage in a variety of activities. Over half of our volunteers are now also trained as Mental Health First Aiders, increasing their ability to offer in-the-moment support and signposting to any young people who attended the café. One of the benefits of this year has been an increase in the number of young people we have been able to signpost to effective help as a direct result of them attending the cafe. Over 30 young people over this year went on to access our counselling service after making a disclosure to our cafe staff, who were able to show them how to access the support.
