We are a Living Wage Employer

Together Dementia Support has today been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Together Dementia Support receive an hourly wage of more than £10.90, higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £10.42 per hour.

Our charity is based in the North West, where 12.5% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage - around 367,000 jobs. Despite this, TDS has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 450,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

“We have chosen to become a Living Wage employer because we value the skills required to do this work and because we care about our staff; their pay deserves to reflect that” – Sally Ferris, CEO

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Together Dementia Support has joined the movement of over 12,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like TDS, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
