East Riding Council say they’re delighted with the response from taxi firms who’ve voluntarily taken safeguarding courses.

Taxi drivers within the East Riding are able to access free training to recognise the signs of exploitation in their passengers.

Licensing Manager Tina Holtby explains more:

“They came in their own time to learn about safeguarding and the role they can play in the community by being the eyes and ears and seeing things that don’t look right and alerting our safe guarding team to those issues. Since we did it, we’ve had 3 drivers who’ve raised issues.”

East Riding Council has been delighted by the response so far

“We will be recommending we do compulsory training for all new drivers within 12 months of applying for a licence with ourselves. The majority have already done it. Those who haven’t would have to do compulsory training.”
