Creative Support Modern Slavery Statement 2016
This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the Modern Slavery Act (Transparency in Supply Chains) Regulations 2015. It sets out the position and steps taken by Creative Support Group to prevent Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in its organisation and supply chains.
Creative Support has a zero tolerance approach to Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking of any kind within its operations and supply chains. Staff are expected to report concerns and management is expected to act upon all concerns raised.
Our Business and Supply Chains
Creative Support is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong commitment to developing and delivering person-centred services for people with care and support needs and preventative services for people who are at risk of social exclusion.
Our society was established in 1990 as “Manchester Housing Consortium” to develop a range of housing and support services for people with mental health needs, and we achieved charitable status in 1991.
In January 2012 we were registered as a provider of social housing by the TSA (now HCA) and manage high quality homes.
Training & Awareness
Creative Support specifically covers the Modern Slavery Act training within its Safeguarding policies and training for staff.
Policies and Controls
During the next 12 months we intend to review and update our policies and controls to address the risks from Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking. These include:
• Whistleblowing policy
• Complaints policy
• Recruitment policy
• Safeguarding policies for Adults and Child Protection
• Supplier selection and approval procedures
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate the risks of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking we will undertake an assessment of our supply chain to identify high risk areas and develop appropriate action plans.
