The Living Wage Foundation is the organisation at the heart of the independent movement of businesses, organisations and people who believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. The campaign for employers to pay a real Living Wage was launched by London Citizens in 2001 and aims to ensure low paid workers have enough money to get by and enough time for community and family life.
The real Living Wage is the only rate that is independently-calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK. The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates employers that voluntarily take a stand by choosing to go further than the government minimum to pay the real Living Wage through an accreditation programme which awards the Living Wage Employer Mark. Today is our anniversary having committed to the real Living Wage 1 year ago. If you would like further information regarding the real Living Wage click here. For more about our commitment click here.
