Committed to paying the living wage

Just one of our pledges to drive forward positive change

Social Change UK have paid the Living Wage since 2010 - when it first set up offices in Lincoln. This month, Social Change UK have signed up to the Lincoln Living Wage Campaign which aims to promote the benefits of paying the Living Wage and promote organisations in the city that do.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently, and updated annually. The current rate is £7.85 an hour, and is calculated according to the basic cost of Living in the UK. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis.

Social Change UK believe that paying the Living Wage is good for the economy, for business, for the individual and for society. By signing up to the Lincoln Living Wage Register, Social Change UK have received the maximum accreditation - three stars. To get three stars you have to commit to working with suppliers who also pay the Living Wage. Social Change UK will now be asking all suppliers to commit to the Living Wage.
