Community transport drivers do it with a glow. Here are some of our drivers and personal assistants with Sue from Dementia Friends during this week’s training session.
Being that it has been half-term this week we’ve been doing lots of training at the main depot.
When we carry vulnerable children we utilize GPS to track our vehicles so that we always know where they are are and we can quickly respond if a problem arises. Both our drivers and passenger assistants received backup training in the use of our GPS system to ensure that we always have skilled users on the vehicles.
As a community transport our remit includes the conveyance of a wide range of vulnerable people of all ages. We included a training session in dementia awareness which was delivered by Sue from Dementia Friends.
