Endeavour on the Right Track with Northern
10 Apr 2017
Northern have partnered with Endeavour to offer supported travel for our young people on trips around their rail network.
BOOST North East travelled from Hartlepool to Middlesbrough to visit the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. The group enjoyed the build-up, looking for the correct train on the departures board. When the train arrived, they were greatly received by the Conductor Dave, who was brilliant with the group, posing for a photo and telling them about his job
BOOST South Yorkshire travelled from Rotherham to Grindleford in the Peak District, with the aim of helping young people with learning difficulties to access the countryside through independent travel and had similarly good experiences with the train staff, who were very helpful.
For some of the young people on the trips, it was the first time they had travelled by train. Northern and their staff helped these groups realise that rail travel can be easy and accessible and can open up opportunities for both pleasure and employment.
Northern recently took on the franchise for the network, which is the largest outside London, and is investing £1 billion over nine years.
We are extremely grateful for this support from Northern and looking forward to upcoming trips to Bridlington, York and the Peak District.
