Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement. Our movement has never been more important than against the backdrop of spiralling prices and a cost of living crisis, so we want to celebrate the employers and individuals pushing our movement forward and encourage others to join the movement of over 14,000 accredited employers.
Living Wage Week comes just two weeks after the announcement of our new Living Wage rates and is the perfect opportunity for you to promote your Living Wage accreditation to staff, stakeholders and the public.
Tackling the cost of living with a real Living Wage and decent work
With energy and food costs still high, paying the real Living Wage and committing to decent employment has never been more important. Despite the tough economic backdrop, we’ve had record number of Living Wage accreditations over the last two years, as well as employers going even further and accrediting as with our Living Hours and Living Pension schemes.
This year’s theme celebrates just that; the movement of employers who are committed to the Living Wage and decent work to ensure staff always have decent work and can always live a dignified life.
Find more details about how to get involved in our biggest celebration of the year below.
We're excited to celebrate Living Wage Week 2023 with the entire movement after the past year's success.
In 2022, over 1000 people attended our events, Living Wage Week featured in over 600 separate pieces of media coverage, and #LivingWageWeek was used over 7,500 times.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to come together as a movement of businesses and communities working to tackle in-work and post-work poverty. Wondering how you can get involved? Take a look at the below resources.
