I have concerns related to modern slavery – how do I report it?

If you have come across a case of slavery or human trafficking, report it to the police by calling 101, or 999 if anyone is in immediate danger. You may also wish to contact the Modern Slavery Helpline on 0800 0121 700 – it’s free of charge. They’re open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and their advisors are trained to offer information and guidance on what to do next.

We have a responsibility to prevent slavery or human trafficking from taking place anywhere in our supply chain. If you know or suspect that it is happening now, has happened in the past or you believe it will happen in the near future at any recruitment agencies, workplaces, suppliers or any other businesses connected to us in any way, please tell us about it as soon as you can.

To provide us with information, please follow our whistleblowing procedure and state that you wish to make a disclosure related to Modern Slavery. This can be done in confidence if you request it and as a whistleblower, the law protects you from being treated unfairly or losing your job as a result of reporting this type of wrongdoing.

We will contact the Modern Slavery Helpline as a matter of urgency and seek guidance on the best way to ensure that this is investigated and any victims get access to appropriate support. We will keep you informed as best we can.

Modern Slavery is an appalling crime and abuse of human rights. We will not work with any business that allows it to happen and will be very grateful to you for bringing it to our attention.
