Developing the spirit of partnership in Woking

Working with agencies, local authorities, faith groups & front line services 

Our Mission

ROC Woking is part of a national movement that brings together volunteers, local and regional authorities and faith communities, to work for the good of the town.  Our three Action Teams cover Social Isolation/Loneliness, Mental Health/Wellbeing and Youth

Our three main action groups ...

Social Isolation & loneliness

Our focus is to unearth the hidden lonely people in our town. Working with WBC we are keen to help those who are isolated and lonely any way we can. Woking Phone Friends (more info below) was formed from this action group and connects folk with designated volunteers for regular chats



Mental Health & Wellbeing

Working closely with WBC, NHS and a number of other local agencies, we are striving to support those with mental health challenges. One initiative is to designate some Listening Benches in Jubilee Square where volunteers who are easy to talk to will be ready to listen. It really helps people to talk about their concerns and to process things going on in their lives 




Harnessing strong relationships with Woking Borough Council, we continue to build synergies across a number of existing youth services in Woking. Woking Youth has now been launched and offering open access youth work across two sites. We plan to run another youth survey to re-assess the needs across Woking


Woking Phone Friends

Woking Phone Friends seeks to connect members of our community who need a regular chat, with volunteers who are willing to make a call
