There is no specific age range for attending The RobinCentre – we aim to change people’s lives no matter how old they are.
We currently have members aged 18 to 47 years old, and support people with mild learning disabilities through to serious autism. With a good track record of being able to meet the needs of individuals who have found day care difficult before, we tailor what we do at our adult day care centre provide the best learning plan for every member.
Individual plans for every member
No Individual Development Plan would work, were it not completely unique. Once our members have been introduced to The Robin Centre, we’ll already be getting to know one another – and laying the foundations for an effective learning programme.
From here, the team will work with the member, and their support network, to detail certain goals and ambitions they want to achieve. And with these simple plans agreed, we can then agree on the sort of vocational skills that will be developed, and relevant educational courses that can be taken.
And, once integrated with our calendar of exciting activities, the Individual Development Plan will become part of the everyday fun of life at The Robin Centre!

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.
Support and rehabilitation
Every aspect of our care service is completely tailored to the requirements of a specific member. We focus on supporting the injured party to achieve the best possible outcome following an injury, and our carers subsequently become an integral part of the rehabilitation programme.
