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.
The London Living Wage is a voluntary higher rate of pay that some responsible employers choose to pay their employees, as it allows staff to meet the cost of living in London. The Living Wage is significantly higher than the Government’s National Minimum Wage rates, because it is calculated according to the cost of living in London. Decisions about what to include in these calculations are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to live financially secure lives.
