Transport, disability, and employment

This report looks to examine the role of transport in the lives of young disabled Londoners seeking employment or opportunities.

We first conducted a workshop session with over 35 young disabled people. We first ran an initial session at a youth centre in East London, with over 35 young disabled people. It was intended as a sounding board for our research questions, but also helped guide our later interviews and focus group research. We then conducted three focus groups, with 19 young disabled people

It examined themes such as; travelling alone, dealing with strangers, navigating rush hour, unexpected changes, and also spoke to practitioners to get their perspective on travel training. Ultimately it concluded that far more clarity is needed in the approach; from consistent freedom pass requirements for disabled young people, to travel training provided for those on a trainee or apprenticeships.
