Answer for Newly Accredited London Living Wage Employers

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I refer you to MQ2014/4557 regarding Living Wage hospitality and catering businesses, of which there are 14 accredited in London.

2 accredited businesses are described by the Living Wage Foundation as in the care sector. A further 15 are in the health sector, encompassing some social care activity.

There are 4 accredited cleaning businesses in London, all of whom have become accredited in the past 6 months. The Living Wage Foundation's Service Provider Recognition programme recognises Living Wage employers providing services to other firms, who offer Living Wage bids for tenders in addition to market rate terms - ensuring that clients always have the choice to implement the Living Wage.
