One of our core values at Co-Ownership is to put people at the heart of what we do, respecting their individual needs and aspirations and helping support them as much as we can. As part of this vision, we, along with 3,500 other employers, are proud to be an accredited member of the Living Wage Foundation.
We believe that just as everyone has the right to own their own home if they choose, everyone deserves the right to earn a fair wage that allows them to create a safe and secure future for themselves and their families. We welcome the increase in UK and London rates announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week (November 5th-11th 2017).
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation commented that the “increase acknowledges that the cost of living continues to rise for workers everywhere and the leadership shown by businesses who welcome this is a cause for celebration during Living Wage Week, sending a positive message to the business community to show what others can achieve.”
