Following consideration of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and a review of the supply chains inputting into our business, we have been able to conclude that we consider it extremely unlikely that our services would be affected by any issue of Modern Slavery. Our supply chains for core business services are short, and referrals of work are only provided to us directly by Local Government Authorities. In respect of our own workforce, we undertake robust pre-employment and vetting checks and all individuals are checked prior to employment to ensure their right to work in the UK.

As a result we believe it is unnecessary for us to take any further action in respect of this legislation.
