Route Guard: secure & independent - every step of the way
Everyone loves the idea of walking or cycling more. Year after year we see young people in our classrooms say that if they had the choice they would love to travel independently, either on foot or by bike.
And we know that this is so often the best thing for them, encouraging them to be active throughout the week into their teenage years will set them up for a healthier life as an adult.
So why don’t we encourage more active and independent travel? As parents and guardians, we often face another concern that if we allow our young people that level of freedom, we might be exposing them to other risks.
Peace of mind is so important, that we have developed a pioneering new app that helps families to plan travel together providing reassurance for parents and young people alike.
