Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

 

At Trust Advice we acknowledge the responsibility of businesses to combat slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to preventing these practices in our operations and supply chains. The devastating impact of slavery and trafficking are far more widespread that many, especially in the west, understand. We work with many charities who themselves are working on the frontlines of the battle against such practices. 

Our goal would be that one day, statements such as these will be unnecessary. In the meantime, the truth about these issues must continue to be broadcast through any means possible. 

Modern slavery encompasses various forms, including human trafficking, forced labor, servitude, and slavery. While we are not required but current law to issue this statement, we remain vigilant against potential exploitation.

This statement specifically addresses the desire of Trust Advice to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, outlining the measures we take to eliminate slavery and human trafficking within the organisation and those we work with. Our reputation for integrity and fairness is crucial to our success and to our commitment to our clients.
