Community Transport Sussex
Travel Buddies!

Film & Campaign Description

Community Transport Sussex runs the Travel Buddy service that matches volunteers who have similar interests with those who may face barriers when accessing public transport or need support to get out and about. It allows more people to enjoy community activities, access local services, attend appointments, go shopping or have a cup of tea at a local café therefore giving them more independence.T

This is reflected in the animation, voiced by Jason Fleming, where we meet several different characters in need of the service or wanting to volunteer hosted by a talking rucksack called Wilkins!

The Travel Buddy service supports a wide range of issues, such as stroke recovery, dementia, and mental health difficulties like depression and anxiety, as well as the effects of social isolation and loneliness.
