Travel assistance for those aged over 19 with SEND


The deadline for transport applications for September 2022 was 30 April 2022. If you missed the deadline, apply as soon as possible if your child is:
• moving into reception, year 7 or year 12 (even if they are not moving schools)
• changing school (any school year)

2. Who gets travel assistance?

The following criteria must be met for an application to be considered.

The adult learner must:

  • live in East Sussex
  • have a current Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
  • be on a full time course (or equivalent)
  • be attending the nearest suitable school or college to home
  • be unable to travel to college on their own

We will then consider the adult learner’s circumstances, and any support their parents, carers, or broader network can offer. This will allow us to assess whether it is necessary to provide transport for the adult learner.

Further information on how we decide who gets travel assistance can be found in:
