The Trust supports charitable purposes in Southend on Sea, Rochford and Castle Point local authority areas.

The ROSCA Trust was set up by the late William Thorby, a well known Thorpe Bay builder, in 1966.

The Trust will only consider applications for charitable purposes within the geographical area covered by Southend on Sea, Rochford and Castle Point local authorities.

The Trust supports a wide range of organisations covering social welfare and the local community; the elderly; disadvantaged; disabled; ethnic groups; asylum seekers; refugees and young people. The Trust will not consider other worthy causes outside these groups or applications from individuals.

The ROSCA Trust does not make ongoing support commitments and prefers to support specific projects or equipment needs. It will make contributions to capital projects, refurbishments or adaptations to meet specific needs such as for the disabled. However, requests for administration and salary costs are of a lower priority.
