At Bury People First we run a Travel Training Programme.

Our ‘Out and About’ Scheme enables people to gain the skills to use public transport or to make walking journeys.

This training can make it possible for people to lead fuller, more independent lives and make more choices about what they do and when they do it. 

Through the scheme we have enabled people to travel to a variety of places including work, college and social groups or just to visit family and friends.

What can we do?

Our trainers can talk with you and others to work out the best ways of supporting you with the following:
  • Road safety and money handling skills
  • Any worries you may have
  • How to gain independence and confidence in going places

How will we do it?

  • We will make a plan that is just for you and your journey
  • Review the plan and give the support that is right for you
  • Keep supporting you until you feel OK to travel the journey without support
