Modern slavery and human trafficking statement


Lichfield District Council (LDC) is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in the delivery of its services and corporate activities. The council recognises that slavery and human trafficking remain a hidden blight on our society, that it has a responsibility to be alert to the risks and to strive to ensure that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

This modern slavery and human trafficking statement details the steps the council has taken to understand potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place measures to ensure that these offences are not committed in its own business or its supply chains.

This statement relates to all activities carried out by the council. It will be reviewed on an annual basis and a new updated statement, acknowledging any further actions that may have been taken, will be published during each subsequent year.
