Transport communication

During the summer the Passenger Transport Team has moved. The service was previously managed within the Operations section of the Council, but most of their operational delivery related to Children, specifically those with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). Therefore operationally it made sense to move the service into Children's Services (SEND Operations) and this was agreed and is effective from 1st September 2021. We are looking forward to working together to further improve our service delivery and with our Children, Young People and their families to develop our travel offer. We are sure that our families will welcome this move and we look forward to working with you.

This is a move that is very much welcomed by Swindon SEND Families Voices, with Chair Person Jacqui Watt commenting “We are really pleased to hear that the Transport team will now be managed within Children's Services. We are confident that this will bring more opportunities for working together and find solutions for the challenges we face as families of children and young people with SEND."
