The awards recognise Living Wage employers and individuals that have made great contributions to communities and industries by implementing and celebrating the Living Wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly pay rate set independently, updated annually, and calculated according to the basic cost of living.
Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis, and almost 4,000 accredited employers have now committed to put respect and dignity at the heart of their organisations by paying the Living Wage.
I AM INCREDIBLY PROUD TO BE SHORTLISTED FOR TWO OF THE 2018 LIVING WAGE CHAMPION AWARDS.
ALTHOUGH ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURE FOR BUSINESSES MAY BE CONSIDERED A RISK, THE INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY AND HAPPINESS OF OUR TEAMS PROVES THE DIFFERENCE WHICH PAYING THE LIVING WAGE CAN MAKE. CARLISLE SUPPORT SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO DO THE BEST WE CAN FOR OUR EMPLOYEES, AND IT IS MY AIM THAT THROUGH OUR PROMOTION OF THE LIVING WAGE, OTHER COMPANIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO DO THE SAME.Paul Evans, Managing Director of Carlisle Support Services

I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO CARLISLE SUPPORT SERVICES ON BEING SHORTLISTED FOR THE LIVING WAGE CHAMPION AWARDS. BY COMMITTING TO RESPONSIBLE PAY, EMPLOYERS LIKE CARLISLE SUPPORT SERVICES HAVE CHANGED THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE UK, LIFTING WORKERS OUT OF POVERTY AND TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CELEBRATING AGAIN IN JUNE WHEN WE ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS.Tess Lanning, Director of the Living Wage Foundation
The awards are judged by an independent panel of business and community leaders, and winners will be announced in June.
