The Living Wage Partners Group (COSLA, Scottish Government, Scottish Care, Unison and CCPS) has issued a component rate template to support providers and commissioners in their negotiations to establish a living wage compliant hourly rate for care and support.
The initial framework was developed by Dr Alastair Rutherford (University of Stirling) and CCPS.
