What we do

Our creative and practical workshops include pottery, woodwork, cookery, arts, crafts, glasswork, fabric design, drama and bike maintenance. These run from our dedicated centres in Walker, Newcastle and Grove Hill, Middlesbrough, as well as in other local neighbourhood spaces - and from a fleet of mobile trailers to help even more children and young people take part.


Young people find out about Kids Kabin in lots of ways - by taking part in our street workshops, seeing us at community events or visiting us with their school - before becoming a member.

Many stay on with us as volunteers, and some go on to work with young people as a career.



Children learn, develop and practice creative and practical skills, as well as passing them on to friends and neighbours.


Our members and their families work with us to design our community activities and benefit their neighbourhoods.


Young people share their skills internationally through a network of global volunteers.
