The RLW is a voluntary scheme set up by the charity Living Wage Foundation aimed at providing low-income workers with better financial security. It differs from the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage which sets the minimum hourly rate a worker must be paid, dependant on their age and whether they are an apprentice.

Nearly 9,000 employers across the UK have signed up to pay their workers at least the RLW, covering some 300,000 workers. Companies such as Everton Football Club, Aviva, Burberry and Fujitsu are signed up to the scheme. However it was reported that nearly 17.1% of all employees are still paid less than the RLW.
