Travel Trainers

Fed up of mum and dad taxi? Want to get to school, college or work independently? Travel Trainers may be able to help!

Travel Training can help you to make a journey between two places on your own and safely.

How can Travel Trainers help you?

Travel Trainers can offer you one-to-one sessions to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to carry out journeys independently and with confidence. This can be very helpful especially if you have not travelled alone before.

The journey can be as simple as accompanying you to a new place like school or college for the first time, or you can have more detailed support if you are not sure how to use public transport at all. Also, teach you the skills or knowledge required to plan and carry out a journey
