Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement 2015
Jewish Care is committed to eliminating the existence or prospect of modern day slavery and human trafficking within its own business and that of its supply chain. Jewish Care acknowledges that it has an obligation to make a slavery and human trafficking statement setting out the steps it is taking to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any of its supply chains or in its own business under the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
1 Jewish Care’s structure, business and supply chains
Jewish Care provides a range of health and social care services to the Jewish community in the UK [such as residential care homes, dementia and disability services, Holocaust survivor and refugee programmes, home care services and support and social groups]. The organisation is a registered charity structured as a [company limited by guarantee (without share capital)] governed by [lay] leadership board members, expert groups and professional directorate teams. Jewish Care’s supply chain is comprised of the external businesses that provide the products and services it purchases, including purveyors of fresh products, and other equipment and services.
2 Policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking
Jewish Care does not support or knowingly deal with any business involved in slavery or human trafficking.
3 Due diligence processes in relation to slavery and human trafficking in Jewish Care’s business and supply chains
As part of the Charity’s due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking, the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier.
4 Higher risk areas in Jewish Care’s supply chain and business
Imported produce from sources from outside the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery/human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored in accordance with Jewish Care’s [Supplier Code of Conduct].
5 Effectiveness and capacity building
The Board of Trustees, Directors and senior management are responsible for assessing and bolstering Jewish Care’s effectiveness in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in its business or supply chains. They do so by providing adequate resources, training and investment. [Jewish Care’s performance is measured annually/each year, members of staff responsible for procurement are required to complete courses with respect to modern slavery capacity building and reporting/etc.
