Decisions:

The Assistant Chief Executive had submitted a reportto approve the Modern Slavery Act – Transparency Statement for 2017 – 2018.

 

Councillor Hayes introduced the report. The statement makes clear that the Council is compliant with the  requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. As a result of the Scrutiny Committee consideration (see above), the interconnection with the Council’s wholly owned companies and their own statements will be referenced.

 

The Council undertook a significant amount of work to support a wide range of people at the risk of exploitation.  He drew attention to recent research by the University of Buckingham which suggested that every £1 spent in providing early support for vulnerable people could save up to £3.35 that might  otherwise be spent in support and assistance at a later date.

1.    Approve the Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement 2017-2018; and

2.    Delegate the approval and publication of modern slavery transparency statement to the Assistant Chief Executive in consultation with the relevant Portfolio Holder.
