RIDG’s Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is a criminal offence under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Modern slavery can occur in various forms, including servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. This document sets out RIDG’s Procedure with the aim of the prevention of opportunities for modern slavery to occur within its business or supply chain. This Procedure’s use of the term “modern slavery” has the meaning given in the Modern Slavery Act.

RIDG acknowledges its responsibilities with regard to ensuring that its operations do not involve any modern slavery and commits to complying with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

This Procedure applies to all persons who work for RIDG directly or on our behalf in any capacity, including all employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, agents, work experience workers, contractors, external consultants, third party representatives and business partners.
