We are proud to announce that we are now an accredited Living Wage employer. The Living Wage is a voluntary commitment made by the organisation, which will ensure everyone working with us receives a real living wage of at least £8.45 per hour. This will also be built into our procurement procedures to ensure our contractors also meet this commitment.

Peter Kelly, Director of the Poverty Alliance who deliver the Scottish Living Wage Accreditation Initiative in partnership with the Living Wage Foundation said "We are delighted to congratulate the Care Inspectorate on becoming a Living Wage employer. Paying the real Living Wage makes a huge difference to people's lives, and employers can enjoy a range of business benefits too, including increased productivity, increased staff retention and lower rates of absenteeism".
