A unique volunteer service to help deprived children of Greater Manchester
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
