This is the Help with my visa! Modern Day Slavery Policy Statement that covers both our own business and our supply chain.
We do not tolerate slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business and are committed to ensuring that it does not take place in our supply chains.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Modern Day Slavery Policy Statement.
Our Modern Day Slavery Policy reflects our aim to act transparently, respectfully and with integrity in all our business relationships. We do not tolerate slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business and are committed to ensuring that it does not take place in our supply chains. We implement and enforce effective systems and controls to mitigate this risk.
We have reviewed our purchases to understand the nature of our suppliers. These include freelancers, consultants and companies providing a wide range of goods and services to help us deliver our aims and objectives.
We have in place systems to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, allowing us to assess, identify, address and monitor risk areas. We assess the risk of slavery or human trafficking occurring in our supply chains and apply enhanced checks where higher-risk areas are identified.
We will carry out risk assessments for new suppliers to consider the likelihood of maltreatment of staff or other unsatisfactory factors. This may mean that we decide not to work with them or seek further information, or assurances, before proceeding. For new suppliers where a higher risk is identified:
To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our policy, we have in place a supply chain compliance programme. This consists of contractual warranties in our agreements with suppliers, site visits (where deemed appropriate and practically possible) and regular audits to check compliance with our policies and procedures.
