Modern slavery is a crime and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Together Housing and its subsidiary companies have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate and day to day activities. We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
