why our staff love their jobs


It’s the combination of the buzz and fulfilment working with children, giving them an experience they will remember for many years. The Robinwood experience really helps to develop and bring out the individual strengths and qualities of children which would not necessarily be spotted in other environments and to facilitate that is a wonderful feeling and gives a huge job satisfaction.


A Worthwhile Career Developing Children


Robinwood has three activity centres, two in the characterful Pennine market town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire, and one in Alston in the beautiful rural North Pennines. Many Robinwood staff have settled in these areas over the years and make a significant contribution to the local communities in which they work.
