A UNIQUE bid to make Worcester a better place to live and work will be launched with a meeting at the city’s Bank House Hotel.
The ROC Conversation brings together civic, church, business, charity, public sector and community leaders and representatives from across Worcester and the county, to celebrate all the great work happening within communities from the grassroots up.
An examination of the any ways in which such group can work better together to build safer and healthier communities will also be on the agenda at the meeting on Monday (October 18).
Civic leaders along with representatives from the police and emergency services, the council, charities, NHS, education, churches, businesses and various faith-based groups will all be present.
Anyone who wants to make a difference to the community in Worcester and tackle the issues currently facing the city are welcome to attend the meeting which starts at 7pm.
ROC Conversations have already been held in cities and counties across the county with a number of success stories.
The outcomes from the conversation have been recognised and regarded as significant by the home office and police forces across the UK.
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: “We should never underestimate the impact which can be made when people come together. I look forward to being part of the ROC Conversation as we work together to make our communities safer and stronger.”
Bishop of Worcester, the Right Rev Dr John Inge, said: “I’d encourage all those who want to make a difference to our community to get involved and share their ideas and experiences. If the outcome is a practical plan that we can all get behind, that can only have a positive impact on Worcester city and beyond.”
