Travel Hands is a service designed to ease the outdoor commute of VIP (Visually Impaired People) by pairing them with sighted & verified volunteers to walk together to similar destinations ensuring a safe, convenient, and inexpensive travel experience. The service launched on May 2021 in London with 10% WOW growth on journeys. A short video on Travel Hands.

With the app, a VIP can submit a trip request that is automatically sent to a volunteer near them, alerting the volunteer to their location. The accepting volunteer will then pick up the VIP and walk towards the requested destination. 

The VIP pay a small fee per journey to get to travel safely, inexpensively and independently outdoors. Volunteers help VIP in a flexible way and walk more. They are vetted by the Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and trained with our online or in person course.

The service started operating as a call centre system and we have launched the mobile app now.  Travel Hands enables the VIP community to have a safe outdoor travelling experience from end to end. With 350+ journeys conducted in London as a call centre, the service has proven to save 30 minutes for every journey undertaken and £40 on travel costs per month as compared to pre-pandemic statistics for an active VIP in London. VIP are encouraged to be more physically active, and improve social interactions to avoid loneliness.
