What do we do @ the Bus Stop?

The project offers a wide range of services and opportunities, including:

  • Provide opportunities for those hardest to reach to engage in informal and accredited learning.
  • Provide information and support on relevant topics, empowering individuals to make informed, positive life choices.
  • Encourage individuals to actively participate in their community.
  • Provide innovative consultation methods and opportunities to individuals and the wider community and ensure effective feedback.
  • Work across sectors in partnership to maximise impact and add value.
  • Increase employment opportunities through ‘Job Clubs’ and Digital Inclusion projects.

All the above can take place from the Project’s vehicle which can be parked right outside people’s front doors or any other convenient location. The vehicle is equipped with relevant and up to date information, has a comfy seating area to engage in informal learning opportunities and consultation, is child friendly, and acts as a base for community projects.
