Five Things Faith Groups Can Do

 

Faith Groups in Scotland play a huge part in the fight for social and economic justice for our communities. The representation we have from faith groups on our Steering Group is testament to this.

Low pay affects the most vulnerable in our society and we know that many faith groups want to be part of the Scottish Living Wage Campaign. Here are five really easy ways that faith groups can get involved:

 

 

Write an article about the Living Wage and low pay

If your faith group has a newsletter, website etc. you could write an article about the campaign. This is a great way to raise awareness and support for the Living Wage. You will find all the information, research and statistics you will need on this website. If you need any assistance just get in touch with us.

 

 

 

Start a campaign!

If you are concerned about low pay in your local area and want to do something about it, why not start a local Living Wage Campaign? We can help you at every stage. You may want to focus your activity around building towards Living Wage Week, which takes place in November each year.

A great place to start is our Living Wage Campaign Toolkit which you can view or download here.

 

 

 

 

Fundraise for us

The Scottish Living Wage Campaign relies on donations from our supporters. Without these vital funds we cannot continue to provide support and information to local campaigners. We are happy to talk about any fundraising ideas you have, or you can donate to our Just Giving page.
