Slavery in the 21st century is often enforced by threats to the individual, coercion, abduction, fraud and deception. Victims range from men and women to children, they can be of all ages and backgrounds.
Broxtowe Borough Council is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in the delivery of its services and corporate activities. The Council recognises that slavery and human trafficking remain a hidden blight on our society, that it has a responsibility to be alert to the risks and to strive to ensure that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
We have developed a Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement to detail the steps we have taken to understand potential modern slavery risks related to our business and to put in place measures aimed at ensuring these offences are not committed.
