Greater Manchester Police has become a Living Wage employer.

All employees currently working for GMP will receive a minimum hourly rate of £8.75 which is significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour.

GMP Assistant Chief Officer Lynne Potts said:



“I am delighted that Greater Manchester Police has become an accredited Living Wage employer. It is really important to us that all staff receive a wage that reflects the real cost of living which will help them better support themselves and their families.

“All of our staff are dedicated to making Greater Manchester a safer place and it is appropriate that we recognise their contribution to the work of the Force in this way.”


The Living Wage is an hourly rate of pay (£8.75) based on the real cost of living. It is different from the government’s so-called ‘national living wage’, which is a legal basic minimum wage rate of £7.50 per hour, based on median income and not the cost of living.
