Who are Travel Buddy Trainers?
A Travel Buddy trainer is an adult with a learning disability employed by My Life My Choice, They will be an experienced traveller able to share their own travel experiences, and will support the buddy’s development through weekly travel training sessions. The coordinator will accompany the trainer and buddy for a few sessions to ensure it is a good working partnership for both.
