TransAid was founded by Save the Children, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), and its Patron, HRH The Princess Royal and is now an international development organisation that shares 25 years’ worth of expertise in 23 countries with partners and Governments, empowering people to build the skills they need to transform their own lives. TransAid work with partners and Governments to train driving instructors, who in turn provide awareness and programmes to local people.
In January, our own Joel Cockhill was cordially invited to an event celebrating 20 years of TransAid and ITP consultancy at The Waldorf Hotel. Along with varied talks and discussions on the future of transport in cities, HRH Princess Royal also spoke about the importance of transport in society. Afterwards she found time to speak to Joel about “naked streets” and “shared spaces”, and Joel promised to minimise the number of signs around the Oxford Street District. The Princess said she was looking forward to seeing the transformation.
