On Friday we were informed by the Living Wage Foundation that we can become an accredited living wage employer, we’re in the process of sorting out the paperwork to make it official.
We’re really proud that we’ve been operating as a community not-for-profit enterprise since 1992, providing a necessary and much-valued service to residents of the Boundary Estate and beyond. Our brilliant and beautiful little launderette has been presented with two awards over the years, one for community involvement and one for community action, which we couldn’t have received without the great work our staff do – especially Maire, our much loved manager, who’s been with us since day one. To be able to pay them the London Living Wage and be recognised for it is another indication of our commitment to best practice as employers and to our community. People often find the idea of a community run not-for-profit launderette a bit unusual, especially with the management and financial oversight being done by unpaid voluntary directors, but they soon realise its worth and we’re grateful for all the support we’ve been shown. At times like this it’s good to thank Lorraine Hart for ensuring the project got off the ground and keeping in touch over the years.
