The Travel Assistance Service provides travel assistance to and from mainstream schools, special schools, colleges, and to interim tuition services - along with help with board and lodging cost for school residential trips.

Travel Assistance

Depending on the pupil's circumstances, we may be able to provide free travel assistance between home and their educational establishment. This may be done in a number of ways including a place on a minibus or taxi, Independent Travel Training, personal budget payment or in the form of a Zoom Zero Travel Pass.
