Charlie Bayne Travel Trust

What support you can get

This fund can cover extra disability-related costs for students travelling in the UK or aboard. Examples include travel expenses, for you or a carer, or indirect costs such as equipment. The fund is open to students with physical disabilities and sensory impairments. Disabled students who are wheelchair users should be the principal beneficiaries.

This fund does not normally cover costs for travel between Cambridge and the student's or carer's home.
