Living Wage Week

the real Living Wage movement

We're celebrating the fantastic work of our Living Wage network during Living Wage Week 2023 from 6 to 10 November this year.

Take a look at some of the highlights coming up, all made possible by our amazing network of employers and supporters. Download our Living Wage Week Guide which will give you ideas on how to join in and show your support for a real Living Wage. Get in touch with us if you have an idea for celebrating your commitment.

Throughout the week we will have a number of blogs and articles related to the campaign to ensure everyone earns enough to meet their needs. We'll also visit accredited employers along with Scottish Government Ministers and local Councillors to highlight their commitment. With your help we hope our social media channels are on fire!

Pre-Living Wage Week you can attend an online event hosted by the Living Wage Foundation called "How to make the most of Living Wage Week" from 10.30am till 12pm on Wednesday 21 September.
