During Learning Disability Week 2013, two of My Life My Choice’s learning disability Champions left John O’Groats for an epic 1285 mile journey, visiting Scotland, England and Wales, as they travelled the length of this island by public transport.
Every day in the UK thousands of important journeys are made by people with learning disabilities, motivated by a desire for independence and to be active citizens.
Throughout the journey our Champions collected stories of “What Works” when improving the public transport service offered to people with learning disabilities.
At every stop the Champions met with a local learning disability organisation to share ideas.
