Living Wage for Social Care - Thames Valley
Living Wage Thames Valley
Calling for a BOBICS Living Wage
BOBICS stands for 'Bucks, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West Integrated Care System' and is the new (2022) commissioning body for all Health and Social Care across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Berkshire West and brings together the work of Local Authority and NHS commissioning.
Citizens UK is the home of the Living Wage. The Living Wage began as one of our local campaigns and we are organisation behind the Living Wage Foundation.
A Living Wage in Health and Social Care is a priority Campaign across Citizens UK as we ask Westminster to put more funding in to support Local Authorities and Integrated Care Systems to pay at least a real Living Wage.
We are building a campaign team to ask Dr James Kent OBE to make sure BOBICS becomes an accredited Living Wage Employer.
Living Wage Week
Living Wage Week is usually in mid-November and is an opportunity to celebrate Living Wage employers and to spread awareness of the Living Wage Campaign among our member organisations. For example, it's a great opportunity for faith communities to invite speaker or include the Living Wage Campaign in prayers. And it can be an opportunity for Schools ot run Assemblies to explore more about the Living Wage. Maybe your organisations could join or plan an event for November?
