The Government has accepted the Low Pay Commission's recommendation that the National Living Wage should rise by 4.9% from £7.83 to £8.21 from April 2019. In addition the Government agreed in the Budget to:

  • Increasing the rate for 21 to 24 year olds by 4.3% from £7.38 to £7.70 per hour
  • Increasing the rate for 18 to 20 year olds by 4.2% from £5.90 to £6.15 per hour
  • Increasing the rate for 16 to 17 year olds by 3.6% from £4.20 to £4.35 per hour
  • Increasing the rate for apprentices by 5.4% from £3.70 to £3.90 per hour

The Living Wage Foundation is due to announce the increase in the Real Living Wage rate from April 2019 on 5 November 2018.

UKHCA will be updating the Minimum Price for Care version 5.1 to take account of the above increases in due course.
