As a family-run company, our care and nursing is the kind we’d want all of our loved ones to receive. We want to make life comfortable and enjoyable for all our residents, allowing them to live safely and as they choose.
We’re committed to doing the right thing not just for our residents but for our colleagues and also those who support us through our supply chains. We take our corporate social responsibility seriously.
We remain fully committed to the ideals set out in the Modern Slavery Act and continue to examine how slavery and human trafficking could affect our business and explain the steps we will be taking in the fight against it. This statement is made on behalf of all companies within the Country Court Care Group as relevant.
We have an absolute zero-tolerance policy to modern slavery. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We have implemented a modern slavery and human trafficking policy and are committed to highlighting the importance of this policy across our organization; in particular, with those who share procurement responsibilities.
We understand that our biggest exposure to Modern Slavery is in our recruitment of staff from outside the United Kingdom and Ireland. We recruit internationally via agencies from various countries and continents including Africa, India and the Philippines. All candidates are offered a contract of employment, pay rates in accordance or above our sponsorship requirements and are free to leave our employment should they wish to at any point.
