Each of which demonstrates the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We are committed to working ethically and with integrity in all we do, improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

 

This policy applies to all employees; directors, managers, consultants and office workers. As well as third-party representatives, and business partners. We expect the same high standards from other businesses and organisations we work alongside.
