Modern Slavery Statement
This statement has been published pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by Kinherit LTD each year aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking taking place within our own business nor in our supply chains.
We are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Our business and supply chains
Kinherit is a multi-site services organisation employing a workforce with diverse skill sets. Its core business is helping individuals with end of life planning, including via the website:
Our company is domiciled in the United Kingdom and has a principally domestic audience. We engage with a number of suppliers for our operations, including printing and distribution, building and office services, events services, media services, recruitment, technology, training.
Policies and Processes
The Company strives to maintain the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour from our employees and our suppliers. We have a range of policies relating to modern slavery which we have embedded in our internal policy documents, making it clear to our staff the actions and behaviour expected of them. Additionally our whistleblowing policy encourages our employees, customers, business partners and suppliers, to report any concerns, including any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking.
We undertake due diligence when engaging with new suppliers, especially where there is potential for modern slavery.
We have evaluated the modern slavery and human trafficking risks for our suppliers and seek to identify (and avoid) those where there is a higher potential for modern slavery.
Training and Awareness
The company requires professionals in our procurement, compliance and HR teams to complete training on modern slavery. As well as training staff, we will be raising awareness of modern slavery issues with staff at periodic intervals, with such provisions reviewed and updated at least annually.
