The Living Wage Foundation is the organisation at the heart of the Living Wage movement in the UK.
We celebrate and recognise the leadership of responsible employers who choose to go further and pay a real Living Wage based on the cost of living, not just the government minimum.
We believe a fair day’s work should mean a fair day's pay.
The real Living Wage is based on the cost of living and is voluntarily paid by nearly 9,000 UK employers who believe we all need a wage that meets our everyday needs.
As well as being good for society, there are significant business benefits to paying the real Living Wage.
The Living Wage Foundation does three things:
We offer accreditation to employers that pay the living wage, or those committed to an agreed timetable of implementation, by awarding the ‘Living Wage Employer’ mark.
We provide advice and support to employers implementing the Living Wage including best practice guides; case studies from leading employers; model procurement frameworks; access to specialist legal and HR advice.
We provide a forum for leading employers to publicly back the Living Wage.
