The Living Wage

Paying the Living Wage is a key part of the Croydon Good Employer Charter. For more information, including the current Living Wage rates, go to the Living Wage Foundation website.

The Living Wage Foundation will work in partnership with charter signatories to identify their needs and take them through the steps to become a Living Wage Employer. 

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that receive Living Wage accreditation will be offered a one-off discretionary business rates discount for their first year of membership.

Living Wage Friendly Funder

To further our commitment to Living Wage in Croydon, we have joined businesses, charities and other local authorities in becoming a Living Wage Friendly Funder.

Living Wage Friendly Funder

Living Wage Friendly Funders work together to end low pay in the voluntary and community sector. They support charities to pay the real Living Wage that meets the cost of living through their grant-making. 

Thousands of charities and funders have already embraced the Living Wage across the UK, but low pay remains a real challenge across the sector.

We want to see the real Living Wage become the norm in every sector.
