Travel Buddies

Introducing our new travel programme.

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) is proud to be working with Greenwich Parent Voice, Cycle Confident and Greenwich Cyclists on Travel Buddies, a new, active travel opportunity for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Young people at secondary school may apply, including those who until now have relied on home-to-school transport. Individuals will be matched to a Travel Buddy who will provide 1:1 support walking or cycling to school.

The scheme is open to young people (based on a pre-programme assessment) who are resident and attend school in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Children will be matched with a Travel Buddy volunteer. These are skilled and enthusiastic walk and cycle ride leaders who are trained in positive handling (for anxiety-related behaviour), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and SEND awareness and more. Supported journeys will either be walking or cycling, with adapted and standard bikes available depending on need.
