Extended hours makes accessing support from The Ambulance Staff Charity easier

The Coventry-based charity is extending their phone-line hours to help the ambulance community get the support they need as quickly as possible.

The TASC phoneline is now open from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. This has been made possible with funding provided by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Launched in 2015, TASC is a national charity dedicated to caring for those who care for us and provides mental, physical, and financial wellbeing support and advice to help ensure the UK’s lifesaving ambulance community is strong, healthy, and ready to be there for us when we need them.

Demand for TASC’s services is growing year-on-year and the charity has also made internal changes to streamline their services to ensure ambulance staff, their family members and ambulance service volunteers get the help they need as quickly as possible. Angie Crashley, TASC’s Wellbeing Support Manager, said:

Working in the ambulance service is hard at the best of times but the last 12 months has been especially tough and it’s really starting to take a toll. Not only is demand for TASC’s services increasing, but we’re also seeing more complex cases which require multiple or more intensive interventions.

With our latest service development, we are ensuring we get people the support they need as quickly as possible, so that they can continue doing the job they love and be there when we need them the most.

Individuals needing support with their mental, physical, or financial wellbeing can contact TASC by phone on 0800 1032 999.
