Modern Slavery Statement

Introduction

We are a provider of healthcare staff, home carers and support workers within the health and social care sectors.

 

Mahogany Care Limited implements its business strategy in an ethically, socially and environmentally responsible manner. We fully acknowledge our responsibility to respect human rights as set out in the International Bill of Human Rights. The IBHR informs all of our policies related to the rights and freedoms of every individual who works for us, either as a direct employee, agency worker or indirectly through our supply chain. We are also committed to implementing the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights throughout our operations. Respect for the dignity of the individual – and the importance of each individual’s human rights – form the basis of the behaviours we expect in every workplace nationally.

This Statement is made pursuant to s54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Mahogany Care Limited takes, to make sure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Modern slavery encompasses domestic servitude, forced labour, criminal exploitation and sexual exploitation. Mhy Care has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery or human trafficking. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to put effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within our business or our supply chain.

Mhy Care is aware of its responsibilities towards its service users, employees and the local community and expects all suppliers to adhere to the same ethical principles. Mhy Care is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our internal policies replicate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include the following:

Recruitment policy: We operate a robust recruitment policy including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all directly employed staff.

Equal Opportunities: We have a range of controls to protect staff from poor treatment and/or exploitation which comply with all respective laws and regulations. These include provision of fair pay rates, fair terms and conditions of employment, and access to training and development opportunities.

Safeguarding Policies: We adhere to the principles inherent within both our Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk policies. These provide clear guidance so that our employees are aware as to how to raise safeguarding concerns about how colleagues or people receiving our services are being treated, or about practices within our business or supply chain.

Raising Concerns (Whistleblowing) Policy: We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they can raise concerns about how colleagues or people receiving our services are being treated, or about practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.

The aim of this statement is to demonstrate that Mhy Care follows good practice, and all reasonable steps are taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking.
