Following a successful partnership in April, Scrap Car Comparison is delighted to be raising funds once more for The Ambulance Staff Charity (TASC), helping support the wellbeing of our lifesaving ambulance community.
Our campaign for TASC earlier this year raised close to £5,000 for the charity, which translates to 291 support sessions for ambulance staff struggling with their finances during the current cost-of-living crisis, or the provision of online therapy and wellbeing modules to 183 members of staff for an entire year.
Across the past 12 months, TASC helped twice as many people as it was pre-Covid, and provided 160 hours of bereavement support, £24,000 worth of grants for people struggling and 2,800 mental health sessions which resulted in a . 63% reduction in trauma symptoms and a 44% reduction in anxiety and depression.
TASC was contacted 7,700 times last year by people in need of their services. However, in light of the current economic climate, external grants have significantly fallen, showcasing the importance of campaigns such as this. With your help, through our Donate-A-Car scheme we can provide even more of this important help to those who keep us safe in our time of need.
When selling your car with Scrap Car Comparison you can choose to donate some – or even every single penny – of the profits to our featured charity. We’ve worked with some of the biggest charities in the country and raised thousands of pounds towards important work across a huge spectrum of causes. For further information on how this scheme works, we’ve put together a handy FAQ document, which can be found here.
With just one phone call, you could help raise money for the staff keeping our ambulance service running, ensuring that they’re able to operate at their best and to provide the very best of their extremely important, life-saving work.
