Welcome to our Travel Buddies page.

LAT Travel Buddies have been established for some time now and provide valuable and life changing travel training services. The services allows people who have not been able to get out and about on their own to train with our highly skilled and experienced travel trainers who will guide them through an extensive training programme that will ultimately result in people being able to travel independently and open up new life changing opportunities.

We have a proven track record and success rate in providing a high quality professional service. All our trainers are fully DBS checked, trained in safe guarding, child protection, child exploitation, lone working, first aid and ITT trainers training.

We have successfully trained over 250 young people who now travel indepdently to a range of schools, colleges and work placements, with some finding opportunities for employment.

Our training changes lives and can have such a positive effect not on only the person being trained but on their whole family and support network.
