Age UK Lewisham and Southwark is an accredited London Living Wage employer
The London Living Wage is set by the Greater London Assembly, and its calculation takes into account the Joseph Rowntree Foundation Minimum Income Standard research in which members of the public identify what is needed for a minimum standard of living. This is then combined with an analysis of the actual cost of living including essentials like rent, council tax, childcare and transport to produce the London Living Wage figure.
Age UK Lewisham and Southwark is firmly committed to the principles of the Living Wage and is delighted to be accredited by the Living Wage Foundation. You can find out more about the scheme on their website.
