  • Support migrants in accessing Early Years enrichment provision for both children and families.
  • Help migrants in understanding public transport routes and provision, supporting them in matching their location to appropriate public transport, ticket options and timings.
  • Liaise with transport officers in Oxfordshire County and District Councils as well as dealing directly with transport providers e.g. bus and train companies, in order to ensure efficient and effective transportation, including, for example, the application for and use of bus passes.
  • Attend and participate in meetings as required to support the needs of the service.
  • Build effective liaisons with colleagues, volunteers and external groups in order to provide accurate information and a breadth of Early Years provision for migrant families.
