All staff at Spectrum Home Care will be made aware of the issues surrounding slavery and human trafficking, whilst being encouraged and supported to report any concerns to Spectrum Home Care management.
Spectrum Home Care will ensure only staff whose credentials can be confirmed are employed. In situations of slavery or human trafficking being identified, Spectrum Home Care will share this information with the Wokingham Borough Council Safeguarding Team to safeguard the individual from harm and with the objective of preventing future situations arising, to promote the elimination of routes and sources of slavery or human trafficking.
Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 states that every organisation providing goods and services in the UK with a total global annual turnover of £36 million (m) or more will be required to produce a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year. Organisations with an annual turnover below £36m can choose to voluntarily produce a statement.
Guidance suggests that statements must be published within six months of the financial year end. Therefore, those with a financial year end of 31st March will be required to publish a statement by 30th September.
