Kairos Community Trust’s Modern Slavery Statement
Modern slavery can take various forms including servitude, forced or compulsory labour, and human trafficking, each involving the deprivation of a person’s liberty in order to exploit them for another’s personal or commercial gain. It is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Kairos Community Trust takes a zero-tolerance approach to any form of Modern Slavery and we are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that Modern Slavery is not taking place anywhere in our organisation.
Our opposition to Modern Slavery is reflected in our unwavering commitment to the highest ethical and legal standards.
Steps to prevent Modern Slavery
All our staff, contractors and relevant third parties are expected to conduct themselves with the highest levels of integrity and in full compliance with the laws, regulations and guidelines that govern our organisation. This includes taking steps to prevent, detect and report incidents of Modern Day Slavery in any part of our own business or that of our business partners.
Kairos Community Trust is committed to improving our processes, practices and policies in an effort to eliminate Modern Slavery everywhere and we expect all our suppliers to support the monitoring and tackling of Modern Slavery.
The charity is aware, given the nature of its services, that people will come to us for care and support who may have experienced modern day slavery. Staff in all Kairos-run programmes and houses will constantly monitor and be vigilant to detect those who have suffered modern day slavery. Kairos will offer therapy, counselling, and support to such people.
This statement constitutes Kairos Community Trust’s commitment against Modern Slavery and is made in connection to, and reference of, the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
