Getting out and about

If you find it difficult to travel there are a range of options to help you. There are also a number of things for you to do during the day to help you stay active and independent. 


Nottinghamshire Help Yourself - you can see what support is available to help you get out and about including travel support and community groups.

Day services - give you the opportunity to stay independent and get involved in social activities, training and education. 

Disability identification card - allows you to alert other people that you have a disability and need some support.

Getting there

Transport to services - transport can be arranged for you to travel to care services if you are eligible for care and support.

Blue Badge scheme - the Blue Badge Scheme will help you park closer to your destination if you are severely disabled. The badge holder can be the driver or a passenger.

Travel passes - if you have a disability there are a number of travel passes and cards that give you a discount off the usual purchase price of transport.
