Another key name in the growth of Middlesbrough’s The Robin Centre

Just a couple of weeks ago, we were delighted to announce that our very own Leandra Smith had been made Business Development Director of Middlesbrough’s The Robin Centre.

And today, we are following that fabulous news with another TRC-related introduction. Here, you can see Victoria Hubery – the new Centre Manager over at the day care centre on Ormesby Road.

Victoria joins TRC with vast experience in adult learning, and brings with her the bubbly, passionate personality the centre needs, going forward. With Vickie dedicated to creating an inspiring, engaging environment for TRC’s service users, and Leandra working on ongoing business development, bright, brilliant things lay ahead for everyone associated with TRC.

(And yes, Leandra’s recruitment expertise may have been instrumental in bringing Victoria into the centre!).

Leading by person-centred learning

“My aim is to make sure our service users lead an active, healthy and fulfilling life,” says Vickie, who joined TRC over the summer. “We tailor our activities to the individual needs of our service users, and adapt them to ensure that all achieve our end goal.”

“I know that we together, as a team, will create great things. Our future is indeed very bright, and with our service users at the heart of everything we do, this pushes us forward to create a day care that is much more than just that. The Robin Centre is a home away from home. One where we continuously support people with everyday living – and make it a fun, enjoyable experience along the way.”

Going from strength to strength

During the first national lockdown, The Robin Centre, along with every other educational establishment in the country, was forced to close its doors. However, once Vickie came on board, she was instrumental in creating a socially-distanced, fully Covid-confident environment.

Astonishingly, despite only being with TRC for a matter of weeks, Vickie helped the centre become the first day care in the whole of Middlesbrough to open its doors to visitors once again.

And with Support Worker Tracy Hall, and Senior Support Worker Lorraine Brown alongside her, Vickie is sure to succeed in all of her goals – while helping plenty of people to reach theirs along the way!
