Become a London Living Wage employer
Paying the London Living Wage (currently £10.85 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 employers, to give employees in Lewisham a wage to cover the costs of living in London.
