All the latest news from the Ordinary Lifestyles family…

Salaries matter….

17 February 2022

We are delighted to announce that Ordinary Lifestyles is now an accredited Living Wage Employer! This means that EVERY staff member working for Ordinary Lifestyles will earn a Real Living Wage.

The Real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year and is announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week. It is currently £9.50 in the UK, with a higher rate for London reflecting the higher costs of living in the capital, however will increase further in April 2022.

Over 9000 organisations, including Ordinary Lifestyles, voluntarily choose to pay the real Living Wage because we believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay. You can find other organisations who pay the Living Wage here:

We are really proud of this achievement and are committed to paying our staff for the sometimes challenging but always rewarding support that they provide to ensure the best possible outcomes and achievements for the individuals supported by the organisation.
