Award for campaign we started to save free bus travel for under 18s in London
17 May 2021
We were really pleased to see that the campaign started by London TravelWatch to save free bus travel for under 18s in London has been recognised with an award at the Sheila McKechnie Foundation annual awards this year. By sounding the alarm and pulling together an alliance, which included the Child Poverty Action Group and Partnership for Young London, we helped to get the issue on the agenda. Our research based on interviews with young people was highly praised by Assembly Members, the Mayor and MPs and played a key part in the campaign’s success.
