Transport

 
Transport
Travel and transport presents many challenges particularly in rural areas such as ours.

Our aim is that wherever possible people with disabilities should be able to access and use the same means of travel as anyone else within the community. This includes walking, public transport, mobility vehicles and taxis.

Each person’s need for transport will be agreed as part of the support planning process in line with their individual needs and chosen activities. This will include opportunities for training and progression leading to a reduction, where appropriate, in dependence.

We work in partnership with Cumbria County Council in helping people to be less dependent upon transport.
