Paying a Living Wage

This week, Hebden Royd Town Council is celebrating our accreditation anniversary (a little belated, we had a busy December!), and our continued commitment to paying the real Living Wage for the real cost of living.


The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost of living in the UK. We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage, because a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.

The Living Wage Movement has really grown in size and success over the course of 2018 and we’re proud to have played a part in making this happen. You can find out more about the Living Wage UK by visiting
