Greater Manchester Living Wage Campaign

Greater Manchester Poverty Action is now hosting the Greater Manchester Living Wage Campaign, having taken it on from Church Action on Poverty. We want to thank Church Action for having convened and hosted the campaign for the last four years. It has been a real success story for Greater Manchester with around eight times more accredited Living Wage employers than at the time of its launch.

Following the resignation of campaign coordinator Alec Spencer, whom we also want to thank for his strategic and unwavering dedication to the cause, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Lynn Sbaih as the new coordinator, and therefore the newest addition to the GMPA team. She was already a core team member of the GM Living Wage campaign, and chaired last year’s National Living Wage Week event.

If you would like to support the campaign or to find out more, please contact Lynn at or 07948 549 485


This is a side note, but a very important one! Coincidentally – we started the accreditation process before being approached by Church Action on Poverty about hosting the campaign – GMPA is now an accredited Living Wage employer.We would encourage every employer, large or small, to commit themselves to paying the Living Wage (currently £8.45 per hour outside London) to all of their directly employed and contracted staff by becoming accredited through our partners the Living Wage Foundation.
