We are delighted to announce that Clan Childlaw is now an accredited Living Wage employer. As the cost of living increases, Clan Childlaw has taken this step to publicly commit to continuing to pay a real Living Wage to everyone who works at Clan. We also want to show our support for the work of the Living Wage Foundation more widely.

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate calculated according to the costs of living. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay.

Joan McNeill, Head of Operations at Clan Childlaw, said:

“Clan Childlaw is delighted to have become an accredited Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage accreditation demonstrates the value of our staff team and our commitment to investment in our people. We are very pleased to join a growing number of organisations who are committed, now more than ever, to ensuring that all employees have a fair rate of pay.”

Peter Kelly, Director of The Poverty Alliance said:

“We all need an income that is enough to cover our needs and protect us from poverty, and it’s only right that employers pay a wage that reflects the cost of living. Too many workers in Scotland are paid less than the real Living Wage and, at a time of rising costs, are struggling to stay afloat. The real Living Wage can offer protection from those rising costs.”
