Lewes Town Council and the Living Wage Foundation

Lewes Town Council has now become fully accredited with the Living Wage Foundation, and is also a "Friendly Funder". Full accreditation means that the council will look at all its subcontractors to ensure that they too are paying the real Living Wage, now £8.75 per hour. Friendly funder status means that they ask all applicants for Town Council grants if they pay the Living Wage to their employees if any. Lewes Town Council have been signed up to the local Living Wage Brighton and Hove for some time. The new accreditation deepens their commitment, and all Town councillors voted for it. Many local councils of all sizes around the UK are accredited, but not as yet Lewes District Council or East Sussex County Council. More information here...
