Travelling independently can be an essential skill, not only to allow you to travel to work, but also to give you freedom in your daily life.
DurhamEnable can provide travel training as part of the support we offer. If you feel uncomfortable walking to work, or taking a bus or train, we can help.
If you are working with DurhamEnable, your Job Coach can help you gain the confidence to travel independently. Your coach will talk with you to make a training plan with your agreement.
Your Job Coach can then travel with you, help you to understand public transport schedules, and assist you if anything goes wrong, such as a change of timing, or a missed bus.
We can also cover personal safety on public transport, and road safety if travelling on a busy route.
Our goal is to help you develop the skills and confidence needed to travel on your own, so that you can get to work without worrying.
