LLCG has become accredited as a  Living Wage Employer - 1 April 2022

We are pleased to announce we have been accredited as a Living Wage employer. The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at LLCG receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.90 per hour. This Living Wage rate was announced on Monday 15th November 2021 as part of Living Wage Week. This rate is significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £9.50 per hour.


In Scotland, more than 14% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage - around 330,000 jobs. Despite this, LLCG has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.


The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate calculated according to the costs of living. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay.


Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 52,000 people in Scotland and put over £310 million extra into the pockets of low paid Scottish workers.

New 5 Year Strategic Plan - 2022 to 2027

We are delighted to present our new 5 Year Strategic Plan (Apr 2022 - Apr 2027) (click to view). The plan was produced with the help of Freshsight, a non-profit consultancy run by Edinburgh students who help transform third sector companies into more effective organisations.  We are indebted to them for their assistance and insights, and to our Board Member, Allan Deeson, for his collaboration with them in producing the plan.

The Strategic Plan's overall objective is to establish an organisation that not only copes with increasing client demand, but establishes a programme to support carers, and continually explores better and more cost-effective ways of delivering our services.  The plan will be subject to continuous review based on targets which have been set against its planned activities.
