CONNECT for Communities

The Connect for Communities element of the project delivers four programmes:

Communities Programmes

The Children’s Programme

The Access to Work Programme

The Mentoring Programme

Community Travel & Learning Disability Activities

You can get a free card to help you when travelling on buses, trains or in a taxi.

The cards have been made to help make travelling on public transport easier for people with learning disabilities, dementia, those who feel vulnerable travelling alone or anyone who thinks it would be a good idea to have one.

The card will help the driver to give help to those who need it.
