Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
This Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is a response to Section 54(1), Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and relates to actions and activities for the financial year ending 30th September 2021.
The YOU Agency Digital Ltd (‘the Company, ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’) is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking violations in its own operations, its supply chain and its products. We have zero-tolerance towards slavery and require our supply chain to comply with our values.
The YOU Agency Digital Ltd is the subsidiary of YOU Holdings Ltd, the parent company being YOU Holdings Ltd and has business operations in the United Kingdom.
We operate in the marketing communications sector. The nature of our supply chain is as follows: we work with a number of key direct suppliers, who provide us with goods, such as equipment for our premises and services such as outsourced software, IT and marketing services.
For more information about the Company, please visit our website: www.you-agency.com.
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we have adopted the following due diligence procedures:
- External supplier audits.
Our due diligence procedures aim to:
- Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains.
- Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains.
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.
Risk and compliance
The Company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in its UK supply chain through:
- Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.
- Reviewing on a regular basis all aspects of the supply chain based on supply chain mapping.
We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because the majority of our supply chain is based in the UK and in low-risk industries, such as internet software and marketing services.
We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our procedures by any of our suppliers, we will require that supplier to remedy non-compliance.
We cannot say with any certainty how effective the steps we are taking have been in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business and supply chains. As part of our work for the next financial year, we will be considering how best to monitor the effectiveness of the actions taken.
