Thanks SWCT for having travel trainers Keith and Linda Keith has been awesome with me, he has helped me gain confidence using my electric wheelchair and patiently helped me overcome all the fears and anxieties I had. They helped me gain my freedom by teaching me how to navigate footpaths, crossing roads and catching buses. Keith and Linda were amazing with this, they organised with my local bus company for me to have a practice session getting on and off an out of service bus at a variety of bus stops which gave me so much confidence.
Then we spent a few sessions catching buses to different locations and stopping to have coffee before doing the return journeys. Keith always made sure I had the confidence to do it and slowly he pulled away and I found I could do it on my own....
This in itself has been the most amazing experience and I would recommend everyone use this service as you wont be disappointed. Life had closed in on me the more my mobility reduced and I didn't realise how much I felt isolated until Linda and Keith opened my world up.. Now i believe I can catch a bus, I can go out into the community and I have the confidence to use time tables, to deal with issues if they crop up (like when the bus was full and I couldn't get on it - I didn't turn around and go home which i know i would have done previously, I just turned my chair around and rolled myself up to the shops instead)
Everytime I do something now, it just builds on my confidence and self esteem and nothing is more important than that. Next up, we will be tackling trains (my real phobia) but i'm more excited about trying this now than i am scared. This is the most amazing service and both Keith and Linda are just awesome, they are extremely patient, they listen to you and protect you, they gently push you and cheer you on with every milestone you reach...
Words will never be able to express the positiveness that has come from being in the presence of the SWCT travel trainers... You will never regret reaching out to them for help and they will NEVER let you down.

You are my sanity
"You have made a big difference in my life. I can no longer drive and I had to travel by public transport to doctors’ appointments and hospital. Nowadays, I get taken by you to the doctors’ and hospital and I am dropped at the front door.
I was always an active person. I was working until I was 65. So when I had no work mates to talk to and couldn’t go anywhere, you came into my life. How great it is for me to make new friends, chat to drivers and the other clients. I have made many new friends.
My husband has dementia, so I’m his brain and he is my legs and you are my sanity.
Thank you form the bottom of my heart for our outings and for looking after us so well. All the office staff are polite and very helpful."
