Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Canaan Healthcare Group Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery.

About the organisation
Canaan Healthcare Group Limited provides domiciliary care services to adults in the community. We are a small organisation with about 20 employed staff. We provide care to people in their own homes. Our policies on slavery and human trafficking: Canaan Healthcare Group Limited is aware of our responsibilities towards service users, employees and the local community and expects all suppliers to adhere to the same ethical principles. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our internal policies replicate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. Currently, all awarded suppliers sign up to our terms and conditions of contract which contain a provision around Good Industry Practice to ensure each supplier’s commitment to anti-slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains; and that they conduct their businesses in a manner that is consistent with Canaan Healthcare Group’s anti-slavery policy. We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
Advice and training about modern slavery and human trafficking is available to staff through our mandatory safeguarding children and adults training programmes, our safeguarding policies and procedures, and our safeguarding leads. It is also discussed at our compulsory staff induction training.
We are looking at ways to continuously increase awareness within our organisation and to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks involved with modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and in our business.
