Modern Slavery Policy


  • WMCA will release a Modern Slavery Statement each financial year, in compliance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement will be made publicly available on our website and intranet. Regular reviews of the policy will be conducted to ensure it adheres to regulatory and legislative requirements.
  • WMCA acknowledges its responsibility as a ‘First Responder’ under Section 52 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, to report all instances when there are reasonable grounds to believe a person may be a victim of modern slavery or human trafficking to the Home Office.
  • Safeguarding will continue to remain a mandatory e-learning course for all new starters within the business alongside the compulsory reading of this policy, with additional training being provided as necessary. Any amendments/updates added to this policy will be communicated to all staff.
  • WMCA will provide a working environment that thoroughly encourages all its employees, customers and other business partners to speak out if they are aware of, or suspect, any wrongdoing or misconduct within the organisation. This includes any circumstances which may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. The CA will support anyone who raises a genuine concern in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. An employee will not suffer any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting, in good faith, a suspicion that modern slavery is taking place in any part of the organisation or our supply chain.
