We deliver activities for boosting Life and Vocational Skills
While always fun, our activities are also always purposeful. We aim to boost everyday life skills, and develop vocational skills too, amongst all of our members.
We have distinct zones for different activities
The Robin Centre has five different zones, each one providing a different kind of environment for learning and socialising.
Funding For the Robin Centre
Funding is usually available for members by contacting Middlesbrough County Council, who will liaise with us in turn.
All member's receive a scrapbook, which they update daily, to record their unique journey of learning and achievement.
Safety during the Coronavirus Virus
The centre has been completely reorganised to ensure social distancing for our members and staff. We were the first day centre in Middlesbrough to reopen after England's first national lockdown.
What we do
The person is the focus of everything we do, as well as everything we intend to do at our day care centre.
Our purpose is to change people’s lives by empowering them with the skills they need to live as fulfilling a life as they possibly can.
We do this by providing a safe, supportive, fun and friendly day care environment to learn new skills which will change their lives.
Our philosophy is that members will learn much more if they take more enjoyment from their learning.
So, we work hard to compile and develop fun & educational activities which allows them to develop these vital skills without knowing that the activity was skill based.
We’ve found this approach to be very successful and prevents the member from viewing The Robin Centre as a school or a place of work. Instead, they view the centre as a safe, fun and friendly place to be.
Everybody; our members, staff, and all visitors, are treated with respect and dignity at all times.

Learning Key Life Skills
What is our approach? By focusing on key areas of everyday life, we aim to develop crucial skills that people can use to improve their experience of life.
Communication Skills. By improving the way we communicate, we become more confident, articulate, and able to handle situations more constructively.
Cooperation Skills. Becoming accustomed to working with others simultaneously boosts socialisation and self assurance.
Decision Making Skills. For those difficult moments we can’t anticipate, we prepare people to choose properly, productively, and without trepidation.
Technology Skills. Ensuring that every member of our day care centre is prepared to deal with the digital age, we walk through essential skills online, using modern applications and technology.
Time Management Skills. From keeping a diary, to prioritising appointments, by developing an awareness of time management we can all manage our lives more effectively.
