ROCA (Respect Our Community Awards) is a scheme which offers funding to community and voluntary groups in Oldham.

Grants of up to £500 are available and are awarded to groups that provide the most benefits to our local communities.

How do I apply?

The second round of 2020 ROCA closed at 5pm on Friday 30 October 2020. Applications were judged by a panel of community representatives, and all applicants were informed of the outcome in November. Thank you to everyone who entered. The full list of autumn 2020 ROCA recipients can be found here.

Our next round of funding will open in spring 2021. Look out for more details coming soon.
