We’re excited to launch our newly funded service for beneficiaries to receive up to ten physiotherapy sessions with a local therapist of their own choosing. The new service increases the charity’s range of physical rehabilitation services, which also includes intensive residential support through joint working with Police Treatment Centres and Fire Fighters Charity treatment centres.
Karl Demian, TASC’s Chief Operating Officer, said:
”The launch of this new service is another important step in TASC’s growth as we continue to strive to provide our ambulance community with the support they need to improve their quality of life and help them continue doing the job they love.”
TASC’s new service – physiotherapy support for the ambulance community – is offered to anyone with an injury or physical difficulty due to, or worsened by their work. To be eligible for the service, applicants must:
