School transport is a big concern for families with disabled children. We hear from many families whose child is clearly eligible for school transport, but they have been refused. And from families whose child has been offered unsuitable transport such as a disabled child who needs close supervision when out in public offered a bus pass to get public transport to school.

That’s why we’re holding a special Facebook Q&A over in our closed (private) Facebook group on 3 August, when you can ask our education experts any questions you have about school or college transport for your child. It’s a great opportunity for anyone worried about their child’s school transport to get immediate, expert advice and help.

Join us on Thursday 3 August , 10 – 11:30 am

To take part in the Q&A, you will have to be a member of our Facebook Group for parent carers. Simply request to join, answer the three membership questions when prompted, and one of our moderators will let you in!

The session will take place in writing (not a video livestream). This means you can stop by our group anytime between 10am and 11:30am on Thursday 3 August to ask your question in the comments under our Q&A post. Then, simply come back later at a time that suits you to read our team’s reply.

Can’t make 3 August ?

Once the session on 3 August has finished, you’ll be able to read through all the answers at a time that suits you.
