This statement is made on behalf of the Board of UK Directors for Sunrise Senior Living and Gracewell Healthcare with regards to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 which requires large employers to be transparent about their efforts to eradicate Slavery and Human Trafficking in their supply chain. We are proud of the steps we have taken to combat slavery and human trafficking and this statement details our policies and practices in recognising and preventing human trafficking and slavery in our supply chain.
We are a provider of health care services in the health care sectors. We have been delivering health and care services throughout the UK for more than 18 years. We have 46 care homes across the UK. Our supply chains include procurement of agency staff, medical consumables, facilities maintenance, utilities and waste management. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we ensure that any suppliers we use have completed our questionnaires in relation to slavery and human trafficking. We ensure that we work with suppliers who treat their obligations towards modern slavery with the same importance that we do.
