Our Charity Impact on the UK's ambulance community | TASC

Our charity impact 2019/20

An unprecedented year of growth and challenges

Our Charity impact

2019/20 has been a defining year for TASC. We launched new services, adapted our current provision, welcomed new team members, trustees and volunteers and even changed our constitution to ensure we can support everyone in the UK’s ambulance community.

As a result, we have continued to build and grow on our achievements from last year to reach, engage with, and support more people than ever before.

Supporting more people than ever before

Supporting more people than ever before

We have continued to build our support services, raise funds, create partnerships and promote our work to help meet the growing need for our support. Our hard work enabled us to deal with this demand, which saw our number of beneficiaries grow by 12% on the previous year.

Providing physical rehabilitation to the Uk's ambulance community

322 hours of physical rehabilitation support provided

To make our physical rehabilitation services more accessible, we have begun offering ten sessions of physiotherapy with a licenced professional in the beneficiary’s local area. This tailored service has been well received and saw us provide three times more interventions than the previous year.

Training our volunteers in peer support

1 in 3 of our volunteers has been trained in Peer Support

Many of our volunteers are serving ambulance staff and last year, we provided almost 50 hours of training to give them the knowledge and skills they needed to support their colleagues during their time of need and we have plans to further expand and develop our training in 2020/21.

Supporting the financial wellbeing of the UK's ambulance community

Over £40,000 more annualised income awards received by our beneficiaries since our Money Advisor joined our team

To strengthen our service offering while reducing costs, we have employed a Money Advisor and a registered counsellor to bring a significant portion of our services in-house. By doing this and streamlining our processes, we have reduced the average cost of a mental health or financial wellbeing session by 17% while offering more and better support to our beneficiaries. Since joining TASC in January, our Money Advisor has also helped our beneficiaries receive additional benefits totalling over £40,000 over the course of the year.
