About the London Living Wage
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis.
The London Living Wage is currently £9.40 per hour. This figure is set annually by the Greater London Authority and covers all boroughs in Greater London. The UK Living Wage for outside of London is currently £8.25 per hour. This figure is set annually by the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University.
The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates the leadership shown by Living Wage employers across the UK. There are currently over 2,000 accredited employers. We are an initiative of Citizens UK. We believe that work should be the surest way out of poverty.
