Is your organisation a Living Wage Employer? Have you noticed positive changes from paying a real Living Wage on communities? We are looking for case studies on the impact of the real Living Wage on Birmingham’s communities to help us promote the take up of a real Living Wage across the City. If you can help, please contact [email protected] by Tuesday 18 January 2022 at the latest.

What is the Living Wage?

  • The real Living Wage is independently calculated based on what employees and their families need to live. This is why it’s higher than the government minimum wage, rebranded as the ‘National Living Wage’.
  • Employers voluntarily choose to pay it – changing people’s lives right now
  • It applies to all workers over 18 – recognising that young people have the same living costs as everyone else

Join our movement to make Birmingham a Living Wage City

BVSC is a Living Wage Employer. Alongside our partners, including the Living Wage Foundation, Citizens UK, Birmingham City Council, Barrow Cadbury Trust and other Living Wage Employers and Funders, we recently launched Birmingham as a Living Wage City. We want to see people across the City benefiting from the Living Wage, and invite you to get involved.
