As we approach the 2021 Senedd elections, Wales faces huge challenges. For too many people, things aren’t working the way they should. The COVID-19 pandemic has not only shone a spotlight on this, it has made things worse, especially for the most vulnerable in our society.
We want to see a fairer, greener, more caring Wales. Our vision for Wales is one in which no one is left behind, and everyone has the opportunity to achieve their potential and realise their ambitions.
In preparing for the campaign ahead, we want to hear from you on how we can build a Wales fit for the future. A Wales that works for all and empowers individuals to get on in life, whilst putting the environment at the heart of our recovery from the pandemic.
In the Senedd, Welsh Liberal Democrats have always punched above our weight and engaged constructively to move Wales forward. In opposition, we led on establishing a safe level of staffing in our hospitals, introducing the Pupil Development Grant, and reducing the cost of bus travel for thousands of young people.
In Government, we have delivered in Education and beyond, widening access to Higher Education, raising school standards and building a curriculum for the future, that is a source of national pride. By entering government we secured funding for 20,000 extra affordable homes, support for the agricultural sector, and funding floor for local government, protecting the delivery of key services.
The challenges ahead are immense, however now is the time for bold solutions to rebuild a fairer, greener and more caring Wales.
