Sheffield Autistic Society have received this message from Frazer Kirk of Sheffield City Council:
“Sheffield City Council has produced some guidance* that is designed to help people who are involved in making transport arrangements for children or adults at risk, or who have specific needs when travelling. It is aimed at professionals, parents, carers, young people and adults at risk, to help them make informed decisions about their travel arrangements so that the experience is a safe and comfortable one. The guidance describes what safeguarding arrangements the local authority has put in place for the transport it regulates and also suggests what passengers and their carers can do, to play their part in making the travel experience a positive one.
We have already consulted with young people about the guidance and we are keen to hear from parents, carers, adults at risk and professionals about their views about the guidance – including is it helpful? did we miss anything out?
*You will find the Draft Guidance and Annexes at the link below (the same webpage as the survey)
