Modern slavery and human trafficking statement

The council recognises its role in safeguarding vulnerable individuals/groups and raising awareness of modern slavery. Working with the local safeguarding boards, we identify best practice and enable effective communication between relevant bodies including law enforcement, local authorities, health care bodies and local groups. The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires certain businesses to publish an annual statement on the steps taken to eliminate slavery and human trafficking in their business and supply chains. Section 54 of the Act also requires the council to consider modern slavery as part of its procurement strategy, ensuring that contractors and third parties have policies in place and adhere to the law and their responsibilities. This is completed through our procurement arrangements with LGSS. The council's Modern Slavery Statement can be accessed via this here.
