Modern Slavery Act 2015
We are publishing this statement under the provision of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and it refers to the financial year ending 31st March 2018.
We are a specialist provider of support for over 800 people with Autism, Mental Health needs, Learning Disabilities and Acquired Brain Injuries across England and Wales. For over 30 years our priority has been the fulfilment of the lives of the people we support. We believe in the potential of everyone we support and are responsive to their needs, working in partnership with families, funders and stakeholders. Our primary focus is quality and we operate ethically and with integrity at all times.
We are opposed to any form of modern slavery and we are committed to ensuring we have effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against this happening within Tracscare. We also ask our suppliers to comply with the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Our processes and procedures are under regular review and we seek to consistently improve our practices.
We have a robust recruitment process whereby we ensure that checks are carried out to validate individual’s right to work in the UK. This is further supported by our safeguarding policy which references the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and highlights to our teams, what indicators they should look out for to prevent this happening.
Our Whistleblowing policy, which is supported by our Freedom To Speak Out Initiative, encourages everyone within Tracscare to report any unethical practices.
Our dedicated compliance specialists across our quality and human resources teams are vigilant in ensuring our policies are followed across the organisation.
