About us


South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (or SCAS for short) is part of the National Health Service (NHS). We receive over 1.7 million emergency and non-emergency calls each year.

We’re committed to offering advice and information for young people to help them stay safe and healthy in a number of situations. This website contains practical advice and guidance on road safety, mental health, dealing with emergency situations etc as well as resources for downloading and videos.

There is also a section dedicated to career, volunteering and membership opportunities with us.
