Nominations opening Jan 2020

The Living Wage Champion Awards celebrates individuals and organisations that have made an outstanding contribution to the Living Wage movement. With Martin Lewis OBE as our host, we celebrated champions from across the movement last year, and plan to do so again in 2020. Look out for nominations - opening in Jan 2020. We'll be posting information about award categories and application guidance in the new year.
