UKFI is responsible for managing the shareholding on a wholly commercial basis, in a way that creates and protects value for the taxpayer.

Currently 75% of mainline trains are either built or refurbished to modern accessibility standards. This includes the provision of an accessible toilet, where toilets are provided.</p> more like this

UK aid is supporting targeted assistance for disabled people, including outreach services providing cooked food, and cash or vouchers for essential purchases. UK assistance is supporting the provision of disabled-access emergency latrines to an estimated 70,000 people. Reducing distances to service points, increasing access into the camps, strengthening referral systems, and increasing access to information as the response continues to scale up will also support the disabled population.</p> more like this
