Croydon Auto Bike Scheme

Playplace Innov8 CIC

The CABS project has been running in Croydon for over 20 years. It has had significant successes over the years, has a well-established footprint in the community and is highly respected by local agencies and residents alike.

We offer attractive programmes of activities that uses motorbikes as a tool to engage positively with young people. CABS have an excellent track record for engaging with some of the hardest to reach young people and helping them to break the cycle of anti-social and criminal behaviour. 

Our evening sessions for 11+ years are free however school concessions may apply please do contact for more information.

Junior sessions on Wednesdays from 4:30pm - 6:30pm 

Senior sessions on Wednesday from 6:00pm - 7:30pm 

Accredited programmes include two key areas:

The motorbike - Our workshop approach enables young people to learn about the motorbike (such as basic engine maintenance, the carburettor, suspension, wheels and bearings). Young people are supported to learn about safety, riding skills and the consequences of illegal behaviours; the course includes a day trip to our specialist off-road motorbike track.

Life and work - The course integrates practical activities with life and employability skills including optional AQA accreditations, CV writing, job search and basic work skills (such as time keeping, health and safety, first aid and appropriate work wear). The programme covers a range of health and well-being subjects including drugs, alcohol and relationships. Young people are also taught the importance of 'boundaries' as they are required to work in a safe and appropriate fashion.

Current activities include bespoke schools packages, youth offending and safer neighbourhood teams referral scheme and Borough Road safety projects and informal drop-ins and club nights. Off road track days and events are arranged at our dedicated track.
