COTA Peer Educators will deliver the education session to groups of older people.
The project aims to increase the confidence of older people to use public transport: Public transport is affordable, safe and reliable. It can be a lifeline to people by making family, health appointments, volunteering, shopping and fitness accessible.
However, for new users it can seem overwhelming, leaving them stuck at home.
We asked older people what works and what doesn’t when using public transport and used this information to develop an education session.
Peer Educators will be; • A public transport user • Able to lead a group education session • Be aged 50 years of age or more • Comfortable accessing the online transport information
