Organisation aims and objectives

Rowland’s – Selkirk Dry Bar Association is a youth café for the young people of Selkirk. Any young person from first year at high school until they are eighteen can become a member. Rowland’s is a young person drop in where young people can hang out in the café bar area, play pool, use the games consoles or access our computer suit in a safe environment supported by a team of adult volunteers.
