We are a Living Wage Friendly Funder

We’re proud to announce we’ve received recognition as a Living Wage Friendly Funder from the Living Wage Foundation.

Living Wage Friendly Funders themselves are Living Wage Employers and where possible we also encourage our partners to become accredited employers over time.

Living Wage Friendly Funders work together to end low pay in the voluntary and community sector. The minimum wage for those aged 25 and over in the UK is currently £7.50 an hour in the UK, but the Living Wage, a voluntary rate which is set independently and calculated in accordance to the basic cost of living in the UK, is considerably higher at £8.75, rising to £10.20 in London.
