Modern Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Donald Design & Advertising Ltd recognises and welcomes the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the duty it places on large organisations to disclose publicly the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery within the business and their supply chains. Donald Design & Advertising Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is committed to improve its practices by acting ethically and with integrity to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not exist anywhere within the organisation or is in anyway associated with the business.
Donald Design & Advertising Ltd was established in 2019. We specialise in providing a diverse range of graphic design services. We aim to deliver and regularly exceed the high levels of service that our customers have come to expect.
Due diligence, risk assessment and auditing
Donald Design & Advertising Ltd considers its position within the design industry as low to medium risk in relation to modern slavery. The company recognises that although comprehensive practices are in place to ensure that modern slavery does not exist within direct recruitment and employment, the very nature of the business is complex when considering the use of an extended supply chain. Donald Design & Advertising Ltd insists that all large companies associated with the business adhere to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act and that smaller companies abide by the principles and policies in operation. Accordingly Donald Design & Advertising Ltd expects its sub-contractors to ensure that modern slavery also does not exist within their own supply chain. Where issues are identified that are not resolved to our satisfaction, we review the on-going nature of the relationship with that relevant organisation.
Donald Design & Advertising Ltd is committed to training its employees to recognise potential situations of modern slavery and procedures to report their concerns.
Donald Design & Advertising Ltd is committed to ensure modern slavery does not exist within its organisation by improving its current practices, adapting existing procedures, creating new policy and continuing to educate its employees.
• To adapt and improve existing key policies and procedures as necessary to address modern slavery issues.
• To provide training for our employees on identifying any potential unlawful or unethical conduct within our operations and supply chain and how to report their concerns.
• To ensure that all applicable sub-contractors have a signed statement and policy to abide by the Modern Slavery Act or for smaller organisations to agree to comply with the policy and procedures of Donald Design & Advertising Ltd.
• To ensure effectiveness and best practice in addressing risk of modern slavery within our operations.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Donald Design & Advertising Ltd modern slavery and human trafficking statement for this financial year .
