Clive's plan to tackle the cost of living

When Clive ran Wokingham Borough Council, he introduced measures such as holiday food vouchers for children in poverty, and a £250,000 hardship fund which has been used to help those who need it most in our borough.

The hardship fund Clive introduced while leader of Wokingham Borough council was used for funding for long-term, high-value projects to tackle the root causes of poverty in the area. Including investing £60,000 in the Winter Warmers project to provide energy-saving equipment for residents living on low incomes, saving them £1.2m on their energy bills. 

It provided the initial funding for a community pantry run by our voluntary and community sector partners, to ensure that residents living on the lowest incomes can afford a healthy diet. 

Clive also made sure that children in poverty had vouchers to pay for lunches in the holidays.

The Liberal Democrats have a great range of policies to tackle the cost of living crisis. You can read more here:
