Employee Benefits

Work should be the surest way out of poverty

The Living Wage provides people the minimum standard of living to provide for themselves and their families. This can reduce stress, absenteeism, and improve the quality of life for thousands of households.

Unemployment levels may be dropping, but with approximately two thirds of households experiencing the effects of poverty having someone in employment, employment in itself is not the route out of poverty. It is good quality employment, which pays the Living Wage, which will ultimately mean households have enough money to meet the basic cost of living.

Like many urban areas, Lincoln faces a challenge:

  • One in four children live in low-income families
  • One in seven households experience fuel poverty
  • One in five workers are estimated to earn below £10,120
  • Tens of thousands of food parcels are provided by food banks in Lincoln each year
