Please Take Me There

Our mission is to enable access to transport facilities for persons throughout the world who have special need of such facilities because they are elderly, poor or disabled, people with young children or those living in isolated areas where there are no adequate public transport facilities.

Founded 2016

  • Mission statement

    For people facing difficulties or living in developing countries, transport can change everything.

    Something as simple as transport can have a huge impact on the lives of sick or struggling children all over the world. Medical and family support is available, but children face the hidden challenge of how they get there, how do they overcome seemingly impossible journeys?

    In developing countries, children with cancer need to find a way to reach the one hospital in the country that can offer treatment – sometimes the hospital is up to three days away. Some families sell all they have to pay for transport. Often, they give up treatment, because the journey is too hard and too expensive.

    In the UK, travel expenses for children with cancer are often unmanageable, amounting to hundreds of pounds a month, and journeys to appointments, consultations, treatment and important family gatherings, become unattainable. Difficult choices have to be made, for children and families already facing incredible challenges.

    Please Take Me There is helping to change this situation. We believe transport is a human right priority and we want to help those in need to get access to it, giving them access to healthcare, new opportunities, empowering their lives.
