Welcome to the Scottish Living Wage Accreditation Initiative



Nearly 1 in 5 people in Scotland do not received the real Living Wage.  This impacts on their daily and family lives.  Getting a real Living Wage of £8.45  that reflects the actual cost of living gives people an extra  £2000  in their pay packets compared to those on the government’s minimum wage for over 25s of £7.20. That gap is even bigger for under 25s on the minimum wage of £6.95.


We want to encourage employers all across Scotland to become accredited. Scottish Canals became our 700th accredited employer. Will you help us reach 1000 employers by autumn 2017?

We were established in April 2014 with the aim of increasing the number of employers in Scotland who are recognised for paying their staff the Living Wage.
