Modern Slavery Statement

Version 1.2 – 22 February 2021

Chartsbridge Group Limited (“the Company”) is a nationwide collections, recoveries and enforcement business. The Company provides judgment creditors, property owners, commercial businesses, banks and lenders with effective debt collection and High Court Enforcement services. The Company only operates within the United Kingdom.

The Company is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

As the Company has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement.

However:

  • We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
  • We understand that Clients with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.

To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:

Pre-Employment Due Diligence

Our business structure is made up of employed and self-employed personnel. All personnel regardless of their employment status are subject to the Company’s strict pre-employment screening process.

We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been identified as having been committed.

Supply Chain Due Diligence

Supply chain procurement is carried out by the Company’s head office to ensure due diligence is carried out for modern slavery risk. Where reasonably practicable during procurement, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.

Insofar as is reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking.

Risk Mitigation

We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others. We do not believe that our supply chain or geography of operation fall within one of those sectors or regions.

Apportionment of Responsibility

 The person in our business responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking is the Managing Director.

 We also encourage all personnel to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
