The Community Bus is a London Transport double decker which has been
converted for mobile youth provision. The bus is able to provide specific,
targeted youth activities in areas of isolation and deprivation in Croydon,
parts of London and Kent.
The bus is equipped with an arts and crafts area, discussion pods and
‘chill out’ areas. There are plasma TVs, a kitchenette, sports equipment
accessories which can be used outdoors.
Each session includes the chance to have group discussions on topics
such as gangs’ awareness, emotional wellbeing, risk-taking behaviour
(including drug and alcohol abuse), emotional intelligence and healthy
lifestyles. All group work activities on the Community Bus can be
accredited through the AQA Unit Award Scheme.
