Modern Slavery Statement

Kay Elliott takes its commitment seriously to Modern Slavery, both in this country and overseas.  We will not work with any client or supplier or business partner that does not have sufficient controls in place to prevent modern slavery or trafficking in either their business or their supply chain in a manner which at least meets the 2015 Act.

Relationships with our customers and suppliers overseas are invaluable to us.  Various standards are applied to our work and we agree to and make our clients and suppliers agree to adhere to a number of principles including:

  • anti-forced labour (governed by UNHCR)
  • minimum age policies and anti-child labour
  • the European Convention on Human Rights
  • the European (anti) Money Laundering Convention

These ensure the people we deal with are socially responsible and compatible with our ethos as a business.

When first dealing with new clients we undertake financial and other research and due diligence to ensure that they are suitable to work with and abide by and able to accommodate the principles of our business and uphold our reputation.


  • Provide regular training in respect of the Modern Slavery Act to our senior staff and Board.
  • Have added a specific item relating to the Modern Slavery Act to the agenda of our Board meetings enabling us to be kept informed of any changes.
  • Include appropriate terms in our contractual documentation, obliging suppliers and contractors to comply with the Modern Slavery Act and reserving the right for Kay Elliott to audit partners where we consider it appropriate.
  • Encourage staff to identify and report any potential breaches of our policy statement.
  • Reports of breaches or concerns are raised confidentially to the Practice Manager or Managing Director and reportees are protected through our confidential reporting process.

The above procedures are designed to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains.
  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business or supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains.
  • Provide adequate protection for reportees.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Kay Elliott’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31/4/2021.
