Our Anti-slavery 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 in our supply chains.

We have assessed our risks and because of the services we provide the risks are very low. Nevertheless, as part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk.
- We ensure that we obtain relevant Identification documents for all the individual subcontractors in our supply chain;
-We maintain records of all payments made to the individual subcontractors in our supply chain;
-We have policies in place to ensure that all individuals in our supply chain are paid correctly at the agreed rates and that these are set at a level at least that of the current National Minimum/Living Wage;

-We have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns.

Supplied adherence to our values

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values. Our compliance department has a policy in place to monitor our supplier relationships and report any concerns.
