We believe it is a great achievement when someone we have supported gains enough confidence to travel alone. Travel Training gives people in social care and complex needs the confidence to make these journeys.
We have an individual package, which includes small steps towards reaching their goals to travel one route, which will be fully risk assessed by our Health & Safety Manager.
The benefits for people travelling independently is huge:
- Reduces reliance on parents/carers and specialist transport
- Provides more opportunities to go out with friends and follow their pursuits.
- Increases the opportunity of finding work
- Increases independence and confidence.
We want to make a difference in peoples’ lives and feel that as a person completes more journeys, it opens other opportunities and adventures.
Once they are travelling independently, we will continue to support to ensure safe travel.
