Become a London Living Wage employer

Find out about becoming an accredited London Living Wage employer.

Paying the London Living Wag​e (currently £10.20 per hour) covers the costs of living in London.

We were one of the first UK local authorities to become an accredited living wage employer.

We are encouraging other Lewisham-based employers to become London Living Wage employer​​s, to give employees in Lewisham a wage to cover the costs of living in London.
