Who does The Ambulance Staff Charity support?

When people think of ambulance staff, paramedics are usually the first thing that come to their mind. The ambulance community is so much bigger than staff out on the road, and at TASC we’re passionate about supporting all of them through times of crisis.

TASC’s services are available across the UK, including England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey Guernsey and Gibraltar.

Who do TASC support
NHS ambulance staff

Serving NHS ambulance staff

TASC can support anyone who has worked for a UK NHS ambulance service for at least 12 months. This includes staff out on the road, call centre staff, managers, and support staff.

Independent ambulance staff

Serving independent/private ambulance staff

TASC can also support anyone who has worked for Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered independent/private ambulance service in the UK for at least 12 months. This includes staff out on road, call centre staff, managers, and support staff.

Retired ambulance staff

Retired/no longer serving ambulance staff

If you have ever worked for a UK NHS or CQC-registered independent/private ambulance service for more than 12 months, then you’re eligible to access TASC’s services, even if you’re no longer serving.

Student paramedics

Paramedic science students

TASC can support paramedic science students from their second year of study onwards, however the support must be related to a work placement.

Ambulance volunteer

Ambulance service volunteers

TASC can support anyone who has been an active volunteer for a UK ambulance service for at least three years. This includes patient transport drivers and Community First Responders (CFRs).

TASC can also support volunteers of CQC-registered independent services such as St John Ambulance or Red Cross if the individual is working on an NHS contract. TASC can’t support general volunteers such as Medicar schemes or event first aiders.

Family members of ambulance staff
