Tackling financial hardship in Wokingham borough – have your say
Wokingham Borough Council is asking for residents’ input to help shape a brand-new strategy aimed at tackling financial hardship and related challenges in the borough, and ensuring all residents have access to the support they need.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about many challenges for local people, impacting their standards of living and health and wellbeing. By taking part in the survey, you will help the Council to understand more about the issues that are affecting people, with key topics including family and home life, employment and income, and access to support.
The information will be used alongside other key data points to help inform the strategy and ensure the Council has the right support in place to help residents who are on low income, or who are facing financial hardship for the first time.
The engagement is taking place on the Council’s new online platform, Engage Wokingham Borough, which is being used to improve how Wokingham Borough Council listen to residents and ensure there is a two-way dialogue. You can sign up to Engage Wokingham Borough and take part in the survey and others via the Engage Wokingham Borough webpage.
