Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman stated “We are delighted to welcome Silver Birch Care to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer. Only the very best employers voluntarily sign up to pay the Living Wage, which is a robust calculation that reflects the real cost of living, and rewards a fair day’s work with a fair day’s pay.”
As a London Living Wage employer, Silver Birch Care have committed to paying all our support work staff a minimum recommended London Living Wage, which is currently set at £10.20 per hour – a rate 30% higher than the Government National Minimum Wage.
At Silver Birch Care, we value the commitment, diligence and professionalism of our staff. It is therefore of paramount importance to us, and the young people we support, that our staff feel valued and well rewarded. As we expand our services across London and beyond, our Living Wage employer status helps us to continue attracting highly qualified staff who are fully committed to supporting young people, and to building a fulfilling and rewarding career in the health and social care sector.
