Living Wage Funder

The Virgin Money Foundation is proud to be a Living Wage Funder. Living Wage Funders are committed to tackle low pay by encouraging and enabling the organisations they support to pay the real Living Wage. The real Living Wage is an independently calculated, voluntary rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is different from the government’s ‘National Living Wage’, which is the legal minimum for over 25s. Nearly 6,000 employers now choose to pay the real Living Wage to all their staff and are accredited as a Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage Foundation would like to see the real Living Wage become the norm in every sector and believes the voluntary sector can lead the way.
