About Travel Assist

Providing community transport throughout the Northwest.  Travel Assist established in 2010 is a not for profit social enterprise which provides community transport.

We are widely considered to be the primary operator specialising in fully accessible supported transport in the Northwest.

Travel Assist’s ethics are based around our 3 social objectives:-

  1. We strive to make transport accessible to those who experience difficulties using mainstream public transport.
  2. We strive to create and sustain long term meaningful employment opportunities.
  3. We aim to ensure that the work carried out by Travel Assist has a minimal impact on our environment.

Our staff who are widely experienced and respected in the industry undergo extensive training and have enhanced DBS clearance. We are proud to provide the highest level of support whilst transporting some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

Making transport accessible, Travel Assist helps to connect people with their Family and Friends which greatly reduces social isolation.
