The Living Wage CampaignPosted on 28th October 2014 by Impetus
We are proud to announce that we’ve signed up to the Living Wage Brighton & Hove Campaign, a local campaign started by the Brighton and Hove Living Wage commission to make sure that employees throughout the city are being paid fairly.
The goal of the Living Wage campaign is to make sure that shops, businesses and organisations throughout Brighton and Hove are paying their workers enough to not just survive, but to enjoy life and live it to the fullest.
Valuing local grantsPosted on 23rd October 2014 by Jo Crease
The voluntary sector in Brighton & Hove punches way above its weight. For every £1 invested in the Brighton & Hove voluntary sector through our Council’s discretionary grant programme, the sector is able to bring in another £13. That’s a huge additional £15.98 million leveraged off a £1.25 million investment from the Council. That’s sounds like exceptionally good value to me.
