Standards of business conduct: This code explains the manner in which we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.

We have a close relationship with our suppliers and after performing a risk assessment of these suppliers we consider that there is a relatively low/no risk of any form of modern slavery.

We provide training to all members of staff and this has been incorporated into our induction of new staff.

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers, clients, projects and regularly review our existing supply chains.

  • Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.

At this time, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in any area of our business. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
