component rate for social care

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.

CIPFA (UK) have also recently  produced guidance on the practicalities of establishing hourly rates
