The intervention aims to deliver travel training for up to 200 young people with a statement of special educational needs or an educational health care plan. The service aims of help young people in Lambeth become more independent by acquiring life skills and confidence. The programme takes approximately 8 weeks. Each young person has a Travel Trainer, who completes four modules of training with them: learning the journey and foundation travel skills, personal safety and problem solving, journey practice and learning alternative routes, and building confidence and becoming independent. Over time and when they are ready, the young person will complete more of the journey on their own until they are travelling independently for the whole journey.
