Each year the organising committees put together a programme of preparation for new and experienced helpers.  
The Practical Preparation sessions normally take place in June and consist of induction on:
  • Safe moving and handling techniques
  • Hygiene - hand washing, infection control, etc
  • Tips on feeding sick pilgrims
  • Tips on washing/dressing sick pilgrims
  • Safe operation of wheelchairs
  • Acceptable behaviour and code of conduct awareness
  • Question and answers sessions
In addition, a spiritual preparation night is also held for volunteers to prepare spiritually for their trip.
