The Tipi Theatre in the Cherwell Wellbeing Garden was the venue for the launch of a new short film by PossAbilities. On the Buses was developed as a fun, insightful and informative way to help people with learning disabilities to feel less anxious when travelling on public transport and to give tips on what to do if they are abused or feel scared.
The cast included three people with learning disabilities, Philip Atherton, Sandra Berry and Mark Broadbent along with a staff member Nicola Loftus. It was written by Malcolm McClean and produced by Ryan Bott.
Rachel Law, PossAbilities CEO said “We are all about supporting people with disabilities to live the life they choose. That includes being able to travel freely and safely on public transport, which opens up so many things that we all take for granted. I’m so happy that we have co-produced this brilliant film with some of the people that we support and really hope that it gives more people the confidence to travel and to know what to do if they are abused”.
