The Living Wage Champion Awards celebrate individuals and organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to the Living Wage movement.
The Real Living Wage is the hourly rate that is calculated by the Living Wage Foundation on the actual cost of living in the UK. It is higher than the government’s minimum wage and is designed to ensure that workers can meet the cost of living.
Local Solutions is a proud Real Living Wage Employer and has been shortlisted for a Living Wage Champion Award, in the Health & Social Care Champion Category by Living Wage Foundation. Organisations that pay the Real Living Wage are committed to providing a fair wage to their employees and positively impacting the wider economy. By getting fair pay, employees feel motivated and valued, resulting in productivity and better work-life balance.
We have introduced a series of measures to support and value our employees during the cost of living crisis, and we are proud to be leading the way in supporting all our employees through the current challenges.
This award shortlist recognises the achievements that Local Solutions have made, not only contributing to promoting and implementing the Real Living Wage, but enabling other organisations across the Social Care sector to do the same. We thank our employees for being a part of the whole process and making this possible
Winners will be announced on Thursday 6 July at The National Football Museum in Manchester.
