We are planning to deploy volunteers across major transport hubs within England to supplement additional staff provided by transport operators. The number deployed will depend on the requirements of transport operators and Local Authorities. Ongoing liaison with transport operators is identifying sites where volunteers can be most effectively deployed to provide assistance.
