Sponsorship Opportunities 2024

Event Activity is critical to our mission of raising awareness of the work of the Living Wage Foundation and growing the Living Wage movement. Without support from sponsors our events wouldn’t be possible, your contributions are vital and we’re very grateful for them.  

There a number of exciting sponsorship opportunities available in 2024. To take up sponsorship or to find out more get in touch with Katie Watts: katie.watts@livingwage.org.uk

The Living Wage Champion Awards 

The Living Wage Champion Awards is a very special evening in the Living Wage calendar. We bring together the Living Wage movement to celebrate the individuals, organisations and campaigns who have made an outstanding contribution to the Living Wage movement in the past twelve months.  

The awards recognise the efforts of those across different sectors - from Health and Social care to Hospitality, and from those championing the Living Wage in their local areas to national businesses – it celebrates the people across our network who have created real change and gone above and beyond to champion the Living Wage and grow the movement. 

This year we’re delighted that the ceremony will be held in Cardiff, in recognition of the incredible growth of the Living Wage movement in the city and across Wales. 

  • Where – Cardiff 
  • Venue – Techniquest Science Discovery Centre

Living Wage Week 

We’re in the process of deciding what Living Wage Week will look like in 2024 as the General Election looks like it may fall close to or during the time we usually run it.

Global Living Wage

In our role as official supporter of the UN Global Compact’s Forward, Faster initiative, we’ll be running a webinar for multinational LWEs on a range of topics. These include implications of the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) recent wage policy update; expansion of our Global Living Wage Affiliate Network, and the launch of an exciting new collaboration (WageMap) that will address the need for globally aligned Living Wage benchmark data.
