Proud to be a Real Living Wage Employer

We are extremely proud to be a Real Living Wage Employer. Everyone working for us receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75. This is significantly higher than the statutory ‘national living wage’, which is the legal minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.

The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently, updated annually and is calculated according to the real costs of living. We choose to pay this as a voluntary commitment to our employees. Because we know that our staff are our greatest asset and we value and appreciate the work that each and every one of them does to make a difference.

What we do

Without exception, all our services are community based. We know that support needs to be both practical and accessible, and b-inspired is dedicated to ensuring residents are at the very heart of what we are about.
