Reducing Inequality Through The London Living Wage


Monday 3rd March 10.30am – 12.30noon
(registration from 10.15am)
VAI, 200a Pentonville Road N1 9JP

The London Living Wage is an hourly rate of pay, currently set at £10.75. It is calculated independently to reflect the high cost of living in the capital, giving a worker in London and their family enough to afford the essentials and to save.
However, organisations must choose to pay their employees the London Living Wage – higher than what they’re required to pay by law.

This mini-workshop organised by VAI and Islington Council will help you with:

– What you need to know?
– Why you need to know?

This is a must attend event if you are going to apply for grants or contracts from Islington Council, Cripplegate Foundation, MOPAC, GLA and many, many more!

In a part of London with high levels of inequality, it goes without saying that paying at least the national minimum wage is vital.
But London is expensive – which is why our local council is committed to the London Living Wage.

Your workshop will include:

• What is London Living Wage?
• Benefits
• Requirement to be funded by Islington Council
• Why organisations should be moving towards becoming LLW employers?
• Budget planning and other key areas
• Frequently asked questions

Places are limited so please book HERE asap!
