Travel Safe programme: 'destination home'

At Cambian, we understand the concerns of the people in our care when it comes to road safety and using public transport.

  • Reading travel information and road signage
  • Traffic light awareness 
  • Pedestrian crossing
  • Buss passenger functions: on-board safety, ticket purchase and stop request
