Making Cardiff a Living Wage City

The Living Wage Places scheme recognises and celebrates the geographical areas that are doing more to expand Living Wage accreditation. They are locations where communities and businesses are working together to tackle low pay within their local area.  

Cardiff has been recognised as a Living Wage City as part of the new ‘Making Living Wage Places’ scheme. A group of prominent Cardiff employers joined forces to form the Cardiff Living Wage Action Group and launched their 3 year action plan to begin ‘Making Cardiff a Living Wage City’. 

The Action Plan includes:

  • ​Increasing the number of accredited Living Wage employers to 150 by 2022.  
  • Increasing the number of people working for accredited Living Wage employers to 48,000 by 2022. 
  • Encouraging major employers, iconic employers and ‘anchor’ organisations in Cardiff to become accredited Living Wage employers.
  • Supporting small businesses to accredit through the Council’s Living Wage Accreditation Support Scheme.

There is already over 100 Cardiff Living Wage employers signed to the scheme.
