Modern Slavery Policy

Introduction 

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 financial year ending 31 March 2020.  

Organisational structure, business and supply chains 

We are an independent company operating solely within the UK. Our business comprises one office based at the address below. 

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 and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within or associated with our business. 

Due diligence 

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.

Assessing and managing risk 

We have a whistleblowing policy in place and, as part of our efforts to identify and mitigate risks within our business, we are introducing systems to identify, assess and monitor potential risk areas. 

Effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking 

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking.

Training

We are providing appropriate training to ensure that relevant employees understand the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking within our business and supply chains.
