Doddington and Rollo Community Association, a charitable company, was established in 1983 to promote, in North Battersea in general, and in the Doddington and Rollo Estates in particular, opportunities for education, training and employment, and to provide in those areas facilities for recreation and community activities. During this time it has moved from being substantially grant aided to being financially self-sufficient for day to day running costs thus ensuring that DRCA can plan ahead without the uncertainty of funding cuts threatening its future.
It fulfils its objectives by providing the following facilities:
A Business Centre offering workshop units for letting to a wide variety of small enterprises.
• Community Halls which can be hired by local residents for parties and activities and by other organizations who wish to offer community activities.
• A charity area on the 1st floor providing subsidised units for small charitable organisations.
It is a membership organization, membership being open to anyone who lives or works on the Doddington and Rollo estates. The Management Committee is elected annually by the members.
DRCA is committed to being a volunteer host organisation, recognising the mutual benefits for DRCA and the volunteer. Our volunteers have brought new skills and ideas to DRCA and have given their time generously.
