Living Wage Campaign Group

This is a pan Lanarkshire group whose focus is to develop a consistent and co-ordinated approach across all partners to engage with local businesses and employers to promote the Living Wage ensuring that as many businesses/employers pay the Living Wage to the benefit of employers/businesses, employees and the local community as a whole.  This is done by bringing staff together from across Lanarkshire who work in partnership to promote the Living Wage.

This group has been active since 2012 and has members from relevant partners across all sectors.  This is currently chaired by Personnel Services, South Lanarkshire Council.  

The Living Wage Campaign Group has been, and continues to be, active in promoting all the services available and is proactive in the following:

  • Sharing information
  • Networking
  • Signposting and referring to partners
  • Training for frontline staff
  • Production of promotional leaflets
  • Production of promotional stickers for wage accredited employers
  • Hosting of awareness raising events both physical and online
  • Supporting the Living Wage Accreditation Discount Scheme (both North and South Lanarkshire Councils provide up to £1,000 per annum)
  • Support and promote the Living Wage Week each November
