Accreditation Initiative

The campaign worked with the Living Wage Foundation to establish the Scottish Living Wage Accreditation Initiative and we recruited our Living Wage Accreditation Advisor, Julie McGahan, in April 2014. The project is funded by the Scottish Government.

The initiative provides employers with the opportunity to become accredited which is a fair trade mark. It shows that the employer is committed to the living wage, and all staff, including sub-contracted staff, are paid at least the living wage.

The number of accredited employers is increasing across the UK, with some recent notable Scottish employers including SSE plc, Falkirk Council and West Dunbartonshire CVS. You can see the full list here
