Living Wage toolkit

Date: 03.10.2019

Living Wage Places: A toolkit on tackling low pay by celebrating local action has been launched today by the Living Wage Foundation and Living Wage Scotland, supported by the Carnegie UK Trust.

The Living Wage Places scheme launched earlier the year to harness this power of place, supporting local employers, communities and people to work together to help extend the Living Wage to more workers and lift more people out of low pay.

The Toolkit published today provides valuable, practical insights for places of all size across the UK – cities, towns, boroughs, zones and even buildings – to begin their own Living Wage Place journey. It includes a range of case studies of those places who have already become recognised Living Wage Places, including Dundee as the first city to be recognised for Making a Living Wage City in the UK, Glenrothes as the first town to be recognised for Making a Living Wage Town and International House in Brixton, London which has been accredited as the first Living Wage Building.
