We want everyone to have the opportunity to travel by rail and we understand that some people may have barriers to access travel or need help to find a way to catch the train that works for them. Penistone Line Partnership has engaged with community and social enterprise organisations, travel providers and councils. We have been researching how we can develop resources to assist people to access rail.
Penistone Line Partnership is committed to making the railway line dementia-friendly, with members having been trained to be dementia-friends. Our aim is to create regular dementia-friendly events on the train and near the Penistone Line. We would like to hear from support providers for people living with dementia who would benefit from bespoke days out on the Penistone Line.
We can develop days out by rail for both children and young adults who live with autism, through their support group. We also partner with mental health charities and support services whose members may benefit from rail days out and creative projects.
