This statement is made in accordance with the requirements of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and applies to Salisbury Holdings Limited and Salisbury Workplace Services Limited, hereafter jointly referred to as ‘Salisbury Group’.

Salisbury Group has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is committed to preventing it from occurring within our business and supply chain. The offences of ‘slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour’ and ‘human trafficking’ remain a hidden blight on society. Salisbury Group’s Board of Directors, Executive Management Team, managers and staff members are fully committed to ensuring that neither slavery nor human trafficking is taking place in our business or supply chain.

Salisbury Group has policies, procedures and processes that support us to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chain
  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chain
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chain
  • Provide adequate protection for whistle-blowers

Salisbury Group’s operational business is solely within the UK and accordingly we consider the geographic risk of slavery and human trafficking to be low. Nevertheless, we consider the main sector risks of our business as being cleaning and maintenance. Our supply chain has several UK-based suppliers in these sectors. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business transactions and relationships and we expect our supply chain partners to share this commitment.

Salisbury Group’s financial year ended on 31 December 2020. In the last 12 months, we have monitored our induction and training processes to ensure staff members are aware of the Modern Slavery Act and its definitions of slavery and human trafficking. This includes developing a new awareness training module on our online learning and development portal, which will be available to all members of staff. We have also ensured that our on-boarding procedure and employee handbook set out our policies and procedures, including our Whistle-blowing Policy.

Modern slavery is an important part of our Ethical Procurement Policy and we periodically review the effectiveness of our processes. For example. we have reviewed our supplier auditing and on-boarding processes to seek evidence of steps taken to enforce anti-slavery practices by supply chain partners. We have also worked with clients and potential clients when requested to supply them with relevant information and ensure they meet their own modern slavery and human trafficking obligations.

These core documents, updated processes and the targeted awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain help us to ensure that Salisbury Group complies with the spirit and requirements of the Modern Slavery Act.

This statement is made in accordance with Section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for Salisbury Holdings Limited and Salisbury Workplace Services Limited for the year 2021, as approved by the Board of Directors.
