A big thank you to Southern Rail for their kind donation of train tickets for our trip to Portsmouth. This was a fantastic opportunity for both our service users and for Southern Rail.
Our service users were able to go through the process of booking tickets online, collecting them from the ticket booth and making the journey to Portsmouth. This allowed them to build their confidence regarding using public transport. Everyone arrived safely and are now enjoying their time in Portsmouth.
Southern Rail also used this opportunity to test how well their services dealt with accessibility. Some staff from Southern Rail who work towards accessibility came on the journey with us to see what did work, and what could be improved.
County Care always enjoys working alongside Southern Rail and working together towards accessible travel for all.
