Local Offer details

Transport for Sick Children is a unique volunteer driver scheme, set up to help children with a health need living in Greater Manchester to access essential health care . Volunteer drivers, using their own cars, help by collecting a child with their carer and driving them to their appointments at various medical locations. When the appointment or treatment is finished, the volunteer then takes the child and their carer back home. It's as simple as that!
