Travel Buddy Scheme

The Travel Buddy scheme allows our members who are confident to travel on their own, whether that is on public transport or on foot, to help others gain those skills.

Quite often there are only one or two regular journeys members want to make on their own. We focus on these journeys until the coordinator is confident that the training has been successful, and the trainee can now travel on their own safely.

Helping confidence and independence

We have found that Travel Buddy training not only helps the confidence and independence of our members but also provides some respite for their families or carers who no longer have to drive or accompany them every time.

Our Travel Buddy coordinator monitors every step of the scheme from pairing the trainee with the trainer, establishing the journey to practice and assessing a final journey to confirm the training has been successful.

If you are interested in arranging Travel Buddy Training for someone you know for care for then please make sure they are members of MLMC and then complete the form on the bottom of this page to get started.
