Ealing Mencap Travel Skills Project

The Ealing Mencap Travel Skills Project offers a tailor-made support program of travel skills as an alternative for people who are unable to access free transport assistance from their borough.

This service is available to people with disabilities and enables them to develop vital independent travel skills.

The Travel Skills Project can offer our students sessions to cover a specific route, general travel skills or build confidence in other areas. Due to the person centred approach of our service we are able to offer a range of travel training packages.  All of our packages include:

  • A free in-depth travel training assessment and assessment resources
  • A travel training plan for a specific route
  • Access to necessary training resources including Ealing Mencap worksheets, games, and more!
  • Training delivered by an experienced and passionate travel trainer
  • Travel time for travel trainers to and from locations
  • Access to on-call support once training is completed 

How does it work?

An experienced Travel Trainer will meet with you and complete an in-depth assessment in order to find out what support you will need. Based on the assessment, you will be offered a bespoke package of Travel Training Skills at an hourly rate. Once you have accepted your package, Travel Training will be delivered by one of our experienced Travel Trainers. Who pays for the training? Anyone can pay for Travel Training including parents/carers or any supporting organisation such as schools or social services. 

Who do I contact?
