Travel Buddies

If you need any help getting to one of our workshops, we have teamed up with My Life My Choice who run a Travel Buddy scheme, offering travel support for people with learning disabilities. Travel Buddies are independent travellers with learning disabilities who have been trained to support others to get to places they want to go.


If you would like a Travel Buddy to help you to get to one of our workshops then call Rachael, the Travel Buddy coordinator, at My Life My Choice on 01865 204214 or send an email to, or you can talk to Hayleigh when making your booking.

My Life My Choice is a self-advocacy charity for people with learning disabilities based in Oxford. They run a Travel Buddy project, which provides support for people with learning disabilities.
