We are the organisation at the heart of the independent movement of businesses and people that campaign for the idea that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. We celebrate and recognise the leadership of responsible employers who choose to go further and provide a decent standard of living by paying the real Living Wage, adopting Living Hours and Living Pensions as well as wider good employment practices. Find out more about how we do this on our what we do page.
The Living Wage Foundation was established after community campaigners successfully fought for pay that reflected the cost of living. This required a mechanism to recognise employers who wanted to join the movement. Still part of Citizens UK today, the Living Wage Foundation continues to work alongside community organisations
The work of the LIving Wage Foundation is steered by a number of leadership groups who provide expertise and support to move our plans to grow the movement forward. Find out about all our of steering groups below.
