Modern Slavery Statement 


Modern Slavery is a criminal offense that results in the gross violation of vulnerable workers' human rights. It takes many forms, including but not limited to, human trafficking, slavery, forced labor, and servitude. At Harmony Homecare Suffolk, we provide care and support to adults over 18 years of age with complex and challenging needs, including learning and physical disabilities, across Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. Our services are funded by individuals themselves, local authorities, clinical commissioning groups, and other health and social care organizations.

We recognize the severity of modern slavery and human trafficking and the impact it has on its victims. While we are confident in our rigorous recruitment and identity checks on our care workers, we acknowledge that this alone cannot eradicate the risk entirely. Identifying potential victims of modern slavery is often challenging as the crime can take many forms. Therefore, we accept our responsibility through due diligence processes to ensure our care workers are not being exploited, are safe, and that we adhere to relevant human rights, employment, health and safety laws, including freedom of movement and communications.

As part of our initiative to identify and alleviate risk, we ensure that our suppliers also treat their obligations towards modern slavery with the same level of importance as we do. Our systems include identifying and assessing potential risk areas, alleviating the risk of human trafficking and slavery, monitoring potential risk areas, and protecting whistleblowers.

We also recognize the importance of training and awareness to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking. Therefore, our policy forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for our company, and regular training is provided on the policy and the risk our business faces from modern slavery. Our employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery policy.

In conclusion, at Harmony Homecare Suffolk, we take modern slavery and human trafficking very seriously and are committed to preventing it in all forms within our business and the wider supply chain. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.
