What is Living Wage Week?

Living Wage Week takes place each year during the first week of November. 

This year Living Wage Week runs from Sunday 31st October to Saturday 5th November.

The new UK and London Living Wage rates are announced every year on the Monday.  The rates are announced simultaneously in cities around the UK whilst the London rate is announced by the Mayor of London.

The week is a UK-wide celebration of the Living Wage and our network of Living Wage leaders.

It is a great opportunity to raise awareness of our work and our mark of responsibility.

The week sees employers all across the country celebrating their role in the movement pubically.

The Foundation holds events, organises media activities and shares new research about the impact of low pay.

Information about the announcement and calculation of the Living Wage rate can be found here.

In 2015 the Living Wage rates were announced in eight different cities across the country.

It is never too early to start planning your Living Wage Week celebrations! Please contact the Living Wage Foundation if you would like any support or advice.
