Why we pay the Real Living Wage

The Real Living Wage is independently calculated to cover the cost of living.

As a business, we are concerned about the cost-of-living crisis and the impact this has on employees. Recently, we’ve been sharing our experiences of being a Real Living Wage employer to encourage other organisations to do the same.

The Real Living Wage rates have just risen to £10.90 across the UK (a £1 an hour increase) and £11.95 in London (a 90p per hour increase).
