Modern Slavery Policy
Modern Slavery is a violation of an individual’s fundamental human rights and is against the law. We fully support the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (‘the Act’) which aims to put an end to all types of modern slavery in the UK. In particular, section 54 of the Act strives to make sure slavery and human trafficking doesn’t take place in business and supply chains both here in the UK and overseas. The definition of Modern Slavery includes slavery, forced or coerced labour, human trafficking, child labour and inhumane or discriminatory treatment.
