Let’s Talk Travel 

​Let’s Talk Travel is a project set up by the Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership, where their extensive research found that travel has been evidenced as an added barrier preventing learners and job seekers from accessing education and employment opportunities further afield.  They discovered that up to 40% of learners and job seekers are avoiding opportunities which require travel.  To tackle this, they offer resources and services designed to blend with existing employability support programmes delivered by colleagues and other providers.  See their website for more details: 

Thanks to funding from GWR, Wiltshire and Swindon Sport (WASP) have produced leaflets in conjunction with Swindon Travel Choices that aim to counter these issues in the Swindon area.  Through tips and advice designed to increase travel confidence, it’s hoped that this will increase opportunities for job seekers, and improve health outcomes for those wanting to stay healthy through travel.
