A unique volunteer service to help children from deprived areas get to Hospital appointments

Transport for Sick Children is a referral only service. Health Professionals who work closely with families and are 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 appointment.

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 2013/14 our Volunteers took: 1,006 children on 5,983 journeys to health appointments covering 125,138 miles

Welcome to Transport for Sick Children, this year the charity celebrates 20 years as an independent charity. We have an incredible team of Volunteers who give up their time and use their own cars to take accompanied children to Health related appointments. They 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.
