Our Processes for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing supply chains
Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
Protect whistle blowers.
After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
To maintain awareness and ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business our Modern Slavery Policy is included in our Employee Handbook.
We provide training to all members of staff and this has been incorporated into our induction programme.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes NCMT’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 28th February 2021. It has been approved by the Board of Directors, who will review and update it annually.
