Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement


Modern Slavery can take many forms. These include, but are not limited to, the trafficking of people, forced labour, servitude and slavery. Eden Futures is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or supply train. This is in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the Modern Slavery Act (Transparency in Supply Chains) Regulations 2015


Eden Futures is a group of four companies which provide social care to people with learning disabilities, mental ill-health and autism. We employ care related staff and staff in roles which support the infrastructure of care delivery throughout England. References to Company in this statement will apply to all companies within the group.


Eden Futures operates the following supporting policies for identifying and preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operations:

  • Whistleblowing Policy –All employees, customers, and suppliers are encouraged to report any suspicion of slavery or human trafficking without fear of retaliation. A confidential helpline is provided to protect the identity of whistle-blowers.
  • Code of Conduct – The company code encourages employees to do the right thing by clearly stating the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the business. The aim of the company is to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and managing our supply chain.
  • Environmental, Social and Governance Policy– This sets out all values and standards the company adheres to together with expectations of the standards that suppliers agree and uphold.


Eden Futures ensures all staff are aware of:

  • The company commitment to the fight against modern slavery
  • Red flags that indicate there may be suspicion of potential cases of slavery or human trafficking.
  • How employees should report suspicions of modern slavery.
  • Information is included in the company Safeguarding Policy and Procedure which is updated annually and available on request from


The company supports any individual who raises a concern in relation to Modern Slavery in any of its forms and commits to protecting those individuals in the making of any disclosure.
To support the raising of concerns the company has an anonymous external reporting route- Safecall – which enables staff to raise concerns confidentially. All staff are provided with this number on their ID badges to support access to immediate, confidential reporting.
Any concern will be treated confidentially and acted upon in a timely way, including referral to external parties where required.


In order to assess and identify the ongoing risks of modern slavery in our supply chain, we ask suppliers to confirm the following:

  • They do not use any form of forced, compulsory or slave labour.
  • Their employees work voluntarily and are entitled to leave work.
  • They provide each employee with an employment contract that contains a reasonable notice period for terminating their employment.
  • They do not require employees to post a deposit/bond and do not withhold their salaries for any reasons.
  • They do not require employees to surrender their passports or work permits as a condition of employment

These risks are re-assessed at regular intervals.

Checks have not identified any risks of modern slavery, forced labour or human trafficking in our current supply chain and due diligence processes continue to oversee new and existing contractors.
