Independent travel can open up a world of social, leisure and employment opportunities. Our training covers personal and road safety and how to plan a journey by bus or train. We also provide support on how to apply for a bus pass, develop skills to read a timetable, tell the time, calculate costs, practice money skills, and how to use a travel app.
We use bespoke assessment tools and a wealth of travel training experience, to gauge where our members are on their steps towards independence. They learn how to prepare for a journey and consider what they need to take with them. We also use role play to practice what to do if something goes wrong before they embark upon any real-life journeys.
Our members are supported at each stage, no-one is left to do it alone until they are ready.
Talkback’s Travel Training has a massive impact on the members who take part but don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself.
