No training is required, however, we will support you with key top-line awareness messages and how to answer frequently asked questions. A full volunteer brief (including travel details) will be sent to you, along with a named staff contact who will be able to answer any questions you may have before the event.
On the day, you will receive a volunteer briefing before your shift, during which, you will be made aware of who you can go to should you have any questions or need any assistance.
