Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
In compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, Cornerstone offers the following statement regarding its efforts to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain.
Cornerstone is a socially and ethically responsible provider of high quality care and support services to adults, children and young people with disabilities and other support needs.
Funded mainly through local authority contracts and one of Scotland’s social care charities and voluntary sector organisations, the majority of our staff are frontline support staff who work directly with people in their own homes or out in the community.
Cornerstone has zero tolerance for modern slavery and respects human rights, including children’s rights. We are committed to acting with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere in our supply chain or in any part of our business.
We will internally review our supply chain to evaluate human trafficking risks and slavery risks and their potential for harm.
Where necessary we will take advice from and consult with the Trafficking Awareness Raising Alliance (TARA), the Migrant Helpline and the Equality and Human Rights Commission in order to ensure these systems are robust and effective.
These actions will be incorporated into the work of our Ethics Working Group and overseen by our Quality and Audit Committee.
This statement will be reviewed annually and published.
