We are committed to eliminating acts of modern-day slavery and human trafficking within our business and from within our supply chains. Our annual turnover is under £36 million and although we are not legally obliged to report on slavery and human trafficking, this statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is our slavery and human trafficking statement for the Company.
POLICY ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or in our supply chains. This policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
We consider ourselves to be a ‘low risk’ business with regard to slavery and human trafficking. However, we foster a culture that encourages the identification and reporting of any such risks within our business. We recruit all our employees either directly or through recruitment agencies who are members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation. We do not recruit from outside the UK or use agency workers.
ASSESSING AND MANAGING RISK
We have a whistleblowing policy in place and, as part of our efforts to identify and mitigate risks within our supply chain, we will be asking them to confirm that they have adequate policies in place.
EFFECTIVENESS IN COMBATING SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure that all those in our supply chains comply with our values we will be providing all our main suppliers with a copy of this statement as well as placing a copy on our Web Site.
We ensure all our staff are educated on this subject and are aware of this statement via induction
