This report contains new insights about pay and the Living Wage in the UK charity sector. It looks at the extent of low pay across the sector and where it can be found – geographically and demographically. It also considers which charities have implemented the real Living Wage and what the impact has been for those organisations. It is intended as a starting point for constructive discussion about pay in the charity sector.
