Cardiff has been recognised as a Living Wage City as part of the new ‘Making Living Wage Places’ scheme. A group of prominent Cardiff employers joined forces to form the Cardiff Living Wage Action Group and launched their 3 year action plan to begin ‘Making Cardiff a Living Wage City’.
The Action Plan includes:
• Increasing the number of accredited Living Wage employers to 150 by 2022.
• Increasing the number of people working for accredited Living Wage employers to 48,000 by 2022.
• Encouraging major employers, iconic employers and ‘anchor’ organisations in Cardiff to become accredited Living Wage employers.
• Supporting small businesses to accredit through the Council’s Living Wage Accreditation Support Scheme.
There are already over 100 Cardiff Living Wage employers signed to the scheme.
If you are an accredited Living Wage employer in Cardiff please consider joining our LinkedIn group to build a community of fair pay employers in the city. Your primary contact for accreditation will shortly receive an e-mail inviting the organisation to join.
If you a Cardiff-based organisation that has not yet accredited and would like to do so please get in touch, we are at hand to support you through all stages of accreditation and Cardiff Council’s support scheme offers a reimbursement of fees up to the value of £720 if you accredit before March 2021.
