Living Wage Foundation
Recognised Service Provider

We are a Recognised Service Provider proudly working with the Living Wage Foundation to promote the real Living Wage.  We believe in paying a decent wage to our staff, who carry out vital work for many organisations, and therefore always provide a Living Wage costed bid to all our clients.  This gives them the chance to decide if the Living Wage is right for their organisation.  We also pay the Living Wage to all staff in our head office and core functions.

The real Living Wage is an independently calculated, voluntary rate of pay that is based on the cost of living.  It is higher than the government’s minimum and thousands of companies choose to pay these rates to their staff. The UK rate is currently £9.00, with a higher rate of £10.55 in London, reflecting the higher cost of living in the capital.
