Modern Slavery Statement


At Citizens Advice Cornwall, we are committed to promoting ethical business practices and upholding human rights. We recognise the importance of combating modern slavery, which is a crime that has no place in our society. We are committed to preventing any form of modern slavery within our organisation and our supply chains.


Our organisation is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and we operate a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery or human trafficking. We believe that everyone has the right to be free from slavery and exploitation, and we are committed to upholding this right.


We are dedicated to ensuring that our staff, volunteers and partner organisations understand and share our commitment to preventing modern slavery. We have put in place appropriate policies and procedures to help identify and prevent modern slavery, including risk assessments and regular training for our staff and volunteers.


We expect all our partners to share our values and adhere to our ethical standards to ensure that they operate in compliance with the Modern Slavery Act.


We encourage our staff, volunteers, and stakeholders to report any concerns they have about modern slavery or human trafficking. We will investigate any allegations thoroughly and take appropriate action where necessary.


We are committed to regularly reviewing and improving our practices to prevent modern slavery and ensure that our policies and procedures remain up to date and effective.


This statement sets out Citizens Advice Cornwall’s commitment to preventing modern slavery within our organisation. We will continue to work hard to ensure that we uphold our values and our responsibilities under the Modern Slavery Act.
