The campaign is now well underway.

And the Liberal Democrats are announcing fantastic policies every single day.

In fact, we've announced so many brilliant ideas this week that it can be hard to keep up.

So we've rounded up everything we've announced this week right here:

Skills Wallets πŸ’°

We will create "skills wallets" - a bold new initiative to give adults Β£10,000 to spend on education and training throughout their lives. They will help everybody to develop the skills needed to work in a 21st-century economy.

Free Childcare From 9 Months πŸ‘Ά

We will introduce free childcare from 9 months old. That will give parents the option to return to work whenever they choose, rather than taking away the choice for parents who can't afford childcare.
