The Modern Slavery Act 2015 introduced changes in UK law, focused on increasing transparency in supply chains. Specifically, large businesses are now required to disclose the steps they have taken to ensure their business and supply chains are free from modern slavery (that is, slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking). Although Vita Health Group (RehabWorks Ltd, Right CoreCare Ltd, Crystal Palace Physio Group Ltd, including any other subsidiary companies or trading names) is not legally obliged to produce a slavery and human trafficking statement, the directors and staff feel it is appropriate to include this statement as it supports our organisational culture and values.
This document applies to all employees and contract workers who work directly for Vita Health Group and relevant supply chains.
Vita Health Group is committed to ensuring a sustainable and ethical business, and as such will work towards eliminating the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking in all of its activities and services. We are committed to ensuring that no person's human rights are violated, and that all employees and suppliers are treated fairly, and that our business partners and suppliers do the same.
To minimise the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking for direct employees:
Our procurement approach follows the Supplier Evaluation policy which includes some mandatory criteria, one of them including the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
