Modern slavery and human trafficking statement

Introduction

This statement sets out AMG Consultancy Services Ltd.’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains. This statement is made pursuant to section 54 Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.  It relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019.

As part of the Nursing & Care sector, the organisation recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.

The organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Organisational Structure

AMG Consultancy Services Ltd is primarily a Nursing & Care Agency and the principal activity of the business is the provision of NHS and Local Authority funded community services. The business holds contracts with more than 10 public commissioning authorities across a range of services including community nursing, reablement and community care all in the UK.

Recruitment & Procurement

AMG Consultancy Services Ltd takes a robust approach in recruiting workforce. We communicate directly with all candidates, to discuss any work opportunities and to confirm details of any offer made. We have robust procedures in place for the vetting of new employees and workers and ensure that we are able to confirm their identities, their right to work in the United Kingdom and that they are paid directly into an appropriate, personal bank account. For any employee or worker with a work permit or visa, we carry out regular audits and management of these documents to ensure they remain valid.  AMG have a team of compliance staff in each of our branches to ensure this policy is maintained across the organisation.  The company also employs a quality team who regularly audit the employee records and the results are reported to both the Management team and the owners of the company to ensure transparency.

In order to ensure other organisations comply with our own standards and values, we have put in place several measures to assess and manage supply chain risk. These include undertaking due diligence on our key suppliers by periodically auditing their modern slavery statements and through mandatory compliance terms in all new or updated supply contracts. We focus our supplier due diligence by identifying higher risk suppliers by category of product and/or the geography of their operations.

Awareness-raising programme

As well as training staff, the organisation has raised awareness of modern slavery issues by putting up posters across the organisation’s premises and circulating a series of emails to staff.

  • The posters and emails explain to staff:
  • the basic principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015;
  • how employers can identify and prevent slavery and human trafficking;
  • what employees can do to flag up potential slavery or human trafficking issues to the relevant parties within the organisation; and
  • what external help is available, for example through the Modern Slavery Helpline.

Whistleblowing

AMG Consultancy Services Ltd encourage all our workers, customers and business partners to report any concerns related to our activities.  Our whistleblowing Policies and Procedures are designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures without the fear of retribution.  The organisation has developed an open culture where any concerns can be raised in a safe, supportive and confidential environment.

This statement was approved on 25th September 2019 by the organisation’s Management Team, who review and update it annually.
