Paying the London Living Wage is not only morally right, but makes good business sense too. There are now over 2,200 employees working for companies with contracts from the GLA who are benefitting from the London Living Wage

What is Living Wage Week?

Living Wage Week takes place each year during the first week of November. The week is a UK-wide celebration of the Living Wage and Living Wage Employers.

It is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the Living Wage and the Living Wage Employer Mark.

The week sees accredited Living Wage Employers across the country celebrate their commitment to the Living Wage.

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

The new UK and London Living Wage rates are announced every year during the week. 

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

The rates are announced simultaneously in cities around the UK whilst the London rate is announced by Mayor of London Boris Johnson.

In 2014 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.
