A unique volunteer service to help deprived children of Greater Manchester

Welcome to Transport for Sick Children, the Charity that has an incredible team of Volunteers who give up their time and use their own cars to take accompanied children to Health related appointments. Our volunteers also enjoy the prospect of helping children and the communities where they live. Children are referred to us by Health Professionals (Midwives, School Nurses, Health Visitors etc.) who are best able to assess the conditions that families live in. Sadly our service is in greater demand than ever which gives our volunteers every opportunity to make a difference to someone’s life.

Volunteers have my total admiration.











John Sagar

Chairman


Greater Manchester has many areas where children live poverty. Health Professionals can refer children with confidence knowing there is every chance the appointment will be met. The NHS is reporting paediatric missed appointments (DNA) are twice as high as  adult  DNA’s.

Volunteers are supplied with child car seats for their own cars to transport children in comfort. All children are accompanied by a parent or carer. The volunteer will pick up from home, take to appointment, wait until treatment is given then take them home.


In 2012/13 the Charity took: 1012 children on 5085 journeys to health appointments covering 100,419 miles
