Our Modern Slavery Policy

 

 

 

Please see below our approved Modern Slavery Statement.

1. Opening statement from senior management

Caring Localsis committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and supply chain and imposes the same high standards on its suppliers.

Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. At CARING LOCALS, we recognise the global impact of slavery and trafficking and as a socially responsible organisation understand that we have a duty to assist in combating such practices. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business dealings, and we have created effective systems and controls to safeguard modern slavery taking place within our business or our supply chain.

2. Policies

As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we have implemented an Anti­ Slavery Policy. We also make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and seek to ensure they adhere to the same high standards.

3. Due diligence

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted a number of procedures and continue to review our processes and best practice guidance with a view to:

  • Identifying and assessing areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains

  • monitoring potential risk areas in our business and supply chains

  • reducing the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains

  • providing adequate protection for whistleblowers

4.Risk and compliance

CARING LOCALS regularly evaluates the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain.

We do not consider that we operate in high-risk sectors or locations because the majority of our staff and suppliers are based in the UK.

Where we identify a potential risk, these will be investigated, remediated and mitigated through activities such as due diligence, improved procurement and recruitment practices or industry collaboration.

We seek to ensure all our suppliers adhere to our anti-slavery policy. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. For example, if we found evidence of concerning practice which fails to meet with our policies, we would seek to rectify the concern or refuse to contract with that party or would terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier.

5. Training

We invest in educating our senior staff, recruitment and procurement teams to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our training programmes and other communication channels, employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of the organisation’s Anti-Slavery Policy. Employees are taught the benefits of stringent measures to tackle slavery and human trafficking, as well as the consequences of failing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from our business and supply chains.

6.Further actions and sign-off

The Company remains committed to preventing slavery or human trafficking from occurring in our business or supply chains, and we intend to continue to strive to improve and strengthen the existing safeguards we have in place.

This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes CARING LOCALS’s Modern Slavery Statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2019. The board of CARING LOCALS and its subsidiaries listed in Annex 1 have approved this statement.
