A team of fundraisers visited The Brae Riding for the Disabled to hand over money from recent fundraising activities and to get a tour of the centre earlier this week.The Late Developers team from Hillcrest Housing Association’s development department raised £1,775 by hosting a walking football tournament in June.
Mr. Keith Brown, Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work is visiting Dundee to celebrate the Wise Group becoming the 845th accredited Living Wage employer in Scotland and to highlight the importance of the Living Wage in the Scottish and local economies.
The Wise Group has been transforming lives through social enterprise since 1983. Supporting over 50,000 people a year we make a positive difference to people, communities and society by helping customers gain new skills and employment, reducing re-offending, regenerating communities and tackling fuel poverty. We have a clear understanding of the type of support our customers need and have a proven track record of providing both innovative and high quality services. The Wise Group delivers results by working closely with stakeholders and partners.
The Living Wage commitment confirms that all Wise Group staff receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.45. This rate is significantly higher than the statutory minimum wage for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. It is calculated according to the real costs of living.
Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work Mr Keith Brown said:
“The Living Wage is set at £8.45 an hour, so it’s fitting that I’m here to celebrate the Wise Group becoming the 845th accredited Living Wage employer in Scotland. This proven investment in people leads to increased productivity and reduced staff absence, while sending a strong signal about fairness to your organisation’s stakeholders, and I applaud Wise for recognising its value.
“As well as setting a great example to other businesses, and in particular other social enterprise’s across Scotland, this achievement marks another positive milestone on our journey towards having 1,000 Living Wage accredited employers by autumn 2017.”
Laurie Russell, Chief Executive of the Wise Group said
‘The Wise Group culture focuses on ensuring that all our staff feel valued and recognised. We have chosen to pay the living wage as an important part of our investment in our people. I believe that other Scottish employers and their employees would also see wider benefits from adopting it’
Peter Kelly, Director of the Poverty Alliance said
‘The Poverty Alliance congratulates Wise Group for becoming our 845th accredited Living Wage employer in Scotland. There is a long way to go to address in-work poverty for the estimated 467,000 low-paid people in Scotland. Living Wage accreditation celebrates employers like Wise
Group that choose to go further than the government minimum, signalling to staff, customers and other companies that Living Wage is part of their core values’
Within our community we have individuals and families who are homeless or who are under threat of homelessness.
There are also vacant properties in need of repair or refurbishment . Positive Step’s Vacant Property Service can bring these properties back in to the rental sector and provide properties to the most vulnerable in our communities.
Landlords can be faced with financial responsibilities and vacant assets. Charges and taxes continue in vacant properties without any income , repairs cannot be made. Positive Steps can help Landlords change these properties in to homes and provide more much needed homes
Positive Steps provide refurbishment up to the value of £3000 and in return use the property for their Supported Accommodation Service without rental charges until refurbishment has been recouped.
This can be cost effective for Landlords as they are no longer faced with costs of an empty property as well as a unused asset.
