TASC’s services are open but following the government’s guidelines announced on 23 March 2020, our staff will be working from home until advised otherwise.

Investing in technology and resources to enable our team members to work remotely is one of our standard working practices and we are well prepared to continue delivering the vast bulk of our services during this time. Our phone lines will remain open but it may take a little longer for our team members to answer. Please leave us a message we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

For our latest news, please follow us on Twitter.

If you need support with your mental, physical or financial wellbeing, please email support@theasc.org.uk and someone will get back to you shortly. If you would like to apply for support, please download an application form.

Talk With TASC

If you’re one of the thousands of people in the UK’s ambulance community currently self-isolating you may be experiencing boredom, stress or social isolation which can all result in feelings of loneliness. With our new free Talk With TASC service, we can arrange for one of our friendly TASC volunteers to call you at a prearranged time for a friendly chat about anything and everything – from the lovely weather to the latest episode of Gogglebox!
