Wokingham Borough Council is asking people who live or work in Wokingham Borough to give their thoughts on its draft Anti-Poverty Strategy, which has been developed in partnership with the Hardship Alliance; a group of four local charities – First Days, Citizens Advice Wokingham, AgeUK Berkshire and Wokingham United Charities.
The strategy’s core objectives include prevention, supporting people in poverty, strengthening communities in their resilience to poverty and improving life opportunities for people living in poverty. It will be underpinned by an annual action plan to address the immediate impacts felt by residents, and to ultimately move more people out of poverty.
The consultation survey is running until 11.59pm on Monday 21 February, via the Engage Wokingham Borough platform. Views of Town and Parish Councils, voluntary sector organisations and professionals supporting people who face financial hardship are also welcomed.
