    Organisation Profile:

    Tameside Armed Services Community (TASC) is a group formed from the armed forces community with direct links to military charities and wider partner organisations. It is a not for profit group with a focus on the delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant through a wide range of community engagement. The group organise trips, events and commemoration events, as well as supporting the covenant implementation and development in the borough and support those who are serving or have served.
    TASC is the partner to Tameside Council in delivering the Armed Forces Covenant. The Armed Forces Covenant was signed by Tameside Council at Armed Forces Day 2012. The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the armed forces. It recognises that the whole nation, has a moral obligation to members of the armed forces and their families and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.

    They don’t have a timetable of events, they support different events when they’re asked or work with groups on a 1:1 or basis.
