Real Living Wage updated!

Published: 27/11/2023 By Hannah Duncan

Since February 2022 we have been a real Living Wage employer, offering the higher London Living Wage rate to all our employees. This is not to be confused with the National Living wage and the Government minimum wage.

The real living wage is the only wage that is based on actual living costs and calculated independently based on what people need to get by. It’s a voluntary scheme which encourages employers to ensure their employees earn a wage that meets the real cost of living not just the minimum the government sets.

The Living Wage Foundation has just announced the new rates, these will be £12.00 up from £9.90, and £13.15 in London, up from £11.05. The diagram below shows the difference between the government rates and the real Living Wage which we provide to all our employees and any externally contracted staff at the higher London rate.

We currently have a number of vacancies, so if you are interested in being employed by a real Living Wage employer visit our careers page here or send your cv to
