Once you reach Year 12 and 13, you can request financial assistance for transport via Shropshire Council’s Post 16 Contribution Scheme. Ordinarily, this assistance will be considered for you if you are attending your designated Post 16 provider as determined by the Authority. There is a charge for transport unless your family are in receipt of certain benefits.

For more details about the scheme or to make an application over the phone, please call Shropshire Council’s Customer Service Team on 0345 6789 006.
