Jersey Hospice Care signs up to being a Living Wage employer

Comment from Emelita Robbins, Chief Executive

‘We are delighted to see JT and JPRestaurants support the Living Wage pledge. We took the decision in February, following the lead of the States of Jersey, that all of our staff would be paid at least the Jersey Living Wage, from 01 January 2018.

‘At Jersey Hospice Care we are committed to enabling people to live well – and that includes ensuring that all our staff are appropriately paid for the vital work they do to support the community of Jersey.

‘The Living Wage is set at a rate that allows a person to enjoy a normal standard of living, without needing to rely on benefits.’
