We are delighted to announce that we are accredited as a Living Wage Employer.
The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate based on the cost of living. It is voluntarily paid by over 14,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs – like the weekly shop, or a surprise trip to the dentist.
This week, the Living Wage Foundation announced its rates for 2023/24; £12 across the UK, and £13.15 for London. This is in response to the continuing cost of living crisis across the UK.
The difference earning a real Living Wage makes compared to the government’s ‘National Living Wage’ amounts to £3,081 a year across the UK, and £5,323.50 for workers in London. This is a significant difference for households trying to keep up with rising living costs.
Over the last few years, IDN has employed part-time and freelance staff as well as a number of interns to assist in its activities. We are proud to be a signatory of the Living Wage policy.
