Ambulance Services Charity is launched

The Ambulance Services Charity (TASC), which has replaced the Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund, was officially launched at the beginning of the month.

The charity will continue to provide nationwide support for the ambulance service community and Trust Chief Executive Anthony Marsh, who is a charity trustee, was one of 40 guests at the launch in Coventry: “It’s really important that our ambulance staff, who work extremely hard and often in very difficult circumstances, know that we are doing everything we can as an ambulance service to support them and their families should they incur difficulties whilst at work or off duty. I am confident that The Ambulance Services Charity will be able to build on the legacy of the previous Ambulance Service Benevolent Fund and create something we can all be proud of.”

There are around 70,000 people working in the UK ambulance service across a wide range of sectors. They are extremely committed and dedicated professionals, with each making an invaluable contribution to society, and all deserving of our support. TASC is now perfectly placed to support ambulance personnel and their families, providing access to confidential, impartial and independent support.
