Housing and care provider Anchor has become a Real Living Wage employer, agreeing to pay staff a minimum of £10.90 an hour outside London and £11.95 within London. The provider employs over 9,000 staff across the country and claims to be the largest to achieve accreditation as a living wage employer by the Living Wage Foundation.  Kate Smith, Anchor’s executive director of business services, said accreditation “enshrines our commitment to ensuring that people working in the housing and social care sector are appropriately rewarded for their hard work.”
