Action For Children has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We are committed to:

—— Acting ethically, and with integrity, in all our business dealings and relationships.

—— Implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls, to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business, or in any of our supply chains.

—— Ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers, and other business

partners, and we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude – whether adults or children – as part

of the due diligence on our contracting process.

We expect our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. In order to achieve this, Action For Children has:

—— Complied with anti-slavery and antihuman-trafficking legislation, by implementing processes, alongside reporting and prevention mechanisms.

—— Included template clauses addressing this issue, to avoid breaches of the Modern Slavery Act by our suppliers. This is clearly written into our procurement documentation with reference to the Modern Slavery Act in the Pre-Qualifying Questionnaire (PQQ).

—— Implemented modern slavery within our Safeguarding Framework/organisational policies and have provided training materials to staff on modern slavery and human trafficking.

These processes will maintain our proactive approach to the prevention of slavery in the UK.
