An online registry now contains modern slavery statements for over 20,000 organisations.
Tiscreport.org, the open data registry committed to helping to end slavery within our lifetimes, is an open public database containing company anti-slavery information.
Jaya Chakrabarti MBE, CEO of TISC Report, said: “We are very proud to have developed a sustainable model that can do so much good in combating slavery without having to go ‘cap in hand’ to the taxpayer and without diverting funds from frontline work.”
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 means that all businesses and groups with an annual turnover of over £36m have to include annual reports on how they are ending modern slavery in their supply chains.
The Welsh Government has committed to completely eliminating slavery throughout its supply chains, irrespective of its suppliers turnover.
Stephen Chapman, Wales Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator said: “The introduction of the central registry will becomes a crucial tool in maximising transparency and fully supporting the important business partnerships we are developing across Wales.”
Martin Mansfield, Wales TUC General Secretary said: “This new code of practice is a very welcome step on the way to ensuring that Wales becomes a ‘fair work nation’.”
