LiftTraining was born in 2007 after National Star discovered a need for personalised travel training programmes that could support and empower people with physical and learning disabilities. We recognised that personalised and structured programmes would help learners increase their skills and build their confidence, giving them the opportunity to work towards travelling independently.
We’re always interested in working with County Councils, educational establishments, charities and organisations across the UK to create new travel training programmes. We can also help you further develop existing programmes, and provide the neccessary expert guidance and support. Use the menu tabs to the left of this page to find out more.
Protecting the health of National Star students and residents
To protect the health of our residential students and long-term residents, National Star is limiting access to some of its facilities. This applies to National Star, Ullenwood, Foundation House and Elizabeth House in Gloucester, Bradbury Gardens in Cheltenham, Matrixcare in Malvern and Ledbury Road, Hereford.
These sites are now considered ‘self-isolating’ households. This is a precautionary measure taking into consideration the latest Government advice around ‘at risk’ groups self-isolating for 12 weeks. Only staff, visiting professionals and close family members will be granted access. Stringent infection control measures are in place in order to enable this reduced access to continue.
