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 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.
Transport for Sick Children is a referral only service. Health Professionals who
work closely with families and best able to assess the health needs of children.
Health Visitors, School Nurses, Midwives, Community Nurses and Social Workers are
among the majority of referrers. Very often they are the ones making the hospital
Volunteers are dedicated to helping children and have time to give freely. They use
their own vehicles and are supplied with child car seats to transport children both
legally and in comfort. All children are accompanied by an adult parent or carer.
Volunteers 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
