CrossCountry is proud to be supporting Lend a Helping Hand, a public awareness campaign launched in stations across Britain and backed by the rail industry, including Network Rail. 

Lend a Helping Hand uses quirky verse to encourage people to be more considerate of their fellow passengers at stations and when boarding and alighting trains to reduce platform-related accidents, and is part of a wider joint long-term strategy which aims to make the transition between the train and the platform safer, so that growing numbers of people can continue to enjoy a safe and better performing railway for years to come.

The long term strategy will look at six key areas: Data and intelligence gathering; influencing public behaviour and helping station staff; train stopping and dispatch, optimising the step gap between platform and train, and improving operational performance and capacity.
