Consultation on the Proposed All Age Travel Assistance Policy

The City of Wolverhampton Council wants to introduce a new policy to help more children and adults travel in an independent and safe way.

We are consulting on the proposed All Age Travel Assistance policy, which covers travel assistance arrangements to facilitate attendance at educational establishments and social care venues and would like to take this opportunity to listen to your views.

The consultation will take place between 2 September 2019 and 29 November 2019.

Background

The council has a statutory duty to provide travel assistance to pupils with special educational needs and disabilities. Currently, the council provides transport for around 750 pupils with SEND. The council also currently transports around 70 vulnerable adults across the city enabling them to attend activities and inclusion within their community. The council recognises this duty and is committed to continuing to meet it. Although we recognise that transport provision is an important service for many of our citizens, feedback we’ve received has suggested some people feel they would benefit from more choice in the way they travel.

Although parents dropping into these events will be accommodated if possible, it is advised to book to guarantee a place (as we will be unable to exceed the Fire Officer's occupancy numbers for venues).

Children and young are welcome to join their parents at events and will be asked to participate in a separate conversation with facilitators, within the room.

We will also be holding engagement events within schools, with school councils, to capture the views and opinions of children and young people.
