Become a TASC Peer Support Volunteer and support the wellbeing of your colleagues!

Join our training workshop to learn everything you need to know to become a TASC Peer Support Volunteer and support your colleagues in their time of need.

''Great course.  Helpful for us all in our day to day work.''

What is a Peer Support Volunteer?

At the core of peer support is the belief that only those who have been through a difficult experience can truly understand what someone going through a similar experience is feeling. TASC Peer Support Volunteers offer a listening ear, empathy and support to colleagues within the ambulance service. 

What the workshop will cover

Over the course of the workshop, you will:

  • gain a better understanding of TASC’s services
  • be empowered to offer support to your colleagues and peers in their time of need
  • learn how to deal with difficult conversations more effectively

We will be bringing together professionals in the fields of mental health, bereavement and debt management in to one training session. This is a rare opportunity for you to have quality time with a range of experts, learn from their extensive experience and ask any questions you may have.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and all attendees are invited to a buffet lunch which will served between 1.00pm and 2.00pm.

‘‘The more people trained, the more people could be helped – everyone would find this course content useful!’’
