Brabourne Ltd [BL ‘the company’] is committed to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking from affecting any part of our business and our suppliers.

Our process for contracting with suppliers includes checks to remain vigilant to any risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.

Our staff are advised to take particular care for organisations that provide services from higher risk territories. Staff are also advised to notify the company immediately if they have any concerns so that the company can then take appropriate action.
We also include appropriate contractual commitments and protections in our agreements with our suppliers where necessary, requiring those suppliers to implement effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking from affecting any part of their business and supply chain. We also require them to provide us with a summary of the steps they take from time to time to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking (including details of any relevant staff and supplier policies and details of due diligence conducted on their suppliers.
