This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Henshall & Sheehy Support Services Ltd has taken (and is continuing to take), to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Our Modern Slavery Statement Registration Reference is: KC696XLS and can be viewed here.

Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Henshall & Sheehy Support Services Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Our Policies

We operate several internal Policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include Equality, Diversity and Ethical Policies.

Anti-Slavery Policy

This Policy sets out the organisation’s stance on modern slavery and explains how employees can identify any instances of this and where they can go for help and assistance.

1. Recruitment Policy. We operate a robust Recruitment Policy which includes conducting eligibility checks for personnel to work within the UK. This allows us to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.

2. Whistleblowing Policy. We operate a Whistleblowing Policy to ensure that all employees know they can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated or practices within our business/supply chain without fear of reprisals.

3. Code of Business Conduct. This code explains the manner in which we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.

Our Suppliers

Henshall & Sheehy Support Services Ltd operate a Supplier Policy and maintain a Preferred Supplier List. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a Preferred Supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery and onsite audits which include a review of working conditions. Our Anti-Slavery Policy, forms part of our contract with all suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this Policy.

In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:

1. They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their business
2. They hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery
3. (For UK based suppliers) They pay their employees at least the national minimum wage / national living wage (as appropriate).
4. (For international suppliers) They pay their employees any prevailing minimum wage applicable within their country of operations.
5. We may terminate the contract at any time should any instances of modern slavery come to light


We regularly conduct training for our procurement/buying teams so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.

Our Performance Indicators

We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:

  • No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.

This Policy is the direct responsibility of James Sheehy and will be reviewed annually.
