Why do you support the Living Wage?

We support the Living Wage Campaign because we recognise that the cost of living in Brighton and Hove is far higher than other towns and cities in the UK and that this should therefore be reflected in the salaries we provide. We value our employees and want to ensure that we pay them fairly for the quality of their work.
