How TASC The Ambulance Staff Charity helped Nicole

‘‘TASC were so understanding and helpful. I learned valuable skills to assist my mental health and I passed these on to my colleagues and friends.’’

Wayne, Ambulance Technician, Scotland

“I was at a low point physically and mentally and TASC’s support is allowing me to rebuild, get back on track and grow stronger.”
