Living Wage Week 2018

Living Wage week commenced on Monday 5th November 2018.

The 2019 real Living Wage rate for outside London has been announced as £9 per hour. The real Living Wage rates are higher than the government’s Minimum Wage and National Living Wage because they are independently-calculated based on what people need to get by. That’s why all employers that can afford to do so are encouraged to ensure their employees earn a wage that meets the costs of living, not just the government minimum.

The Synod is proud to have been an Accredited Living Wage Employer since the beginning of 2016.
