The National Literacy Trust is proud to be accredited as a UK Living Wage Employer.
What is the Living Wage?
The Living Wage is:
- an hourly rate set independently and updated annually
- calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK
- paid on a voluntary basis by employers
The Living Wage campaign was launched in 2001 by parents in East London, who were frustrated that working two minimum wage jobs left no time for family life.
