Learn everything you need to know to become a TASC Peer Support Volunteer and offer colleagues support in their time of need, on one of our training workshops.
A Peer Support Volunteer is a currently serving or retired member of the ambulance community who wants to support the health and wellbeing of their colleagues. Using their own experience where appropriate, Peer Support Volunteers offer a listening ear, empathy and support to colleagues within the ambulance service.
To become a TASC Peer Support Volunteer, an individual must first be registered as a TASC volunteer and attend a one-day training workshop where specialist training will be provided.
As well as exploring TASC’s full range of support services, you will hear from experts in counselling, trauma, bereavement, suicide and debt advice. In addition, our experts will provide you with tips and advice on managing your own health and wellbeing.
The training involves lots of interaction and activities and there will also be opportunity for group discussions.
The workshop covers a range of subjects including:
Our workshops are only available to currently serving or retired ambulance staff, and ambulance service volunteers who have registered as a TASC volunteer online. If you’re not currently a TASC volunteer but would like to attend a Peer Support Training Workshop, please complete our online volunteer application form.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all planned training workshops have now been cancelled and will be rescheduled for later in the year.
