Loneliness and boredom can affect anyone

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.

While you may be isolating, you’re not alone. Talk With TASC is here to help.

With our free service, one of our friendly TASC volunteers will call you at a prearranged time for a friendly chat about anything and everything – from the lovely weather to the latest episode of Gogglebox!

Need extra support?

The person at the other end of the phone is not a trained counsellor and can’t provide any mental health services other than a listening ear. If you’re struggling with your mental, physical or financial wellbeing and would like some support, our other services may be able to support you.
