Introduction From The Company

We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

Organisation’s Structure

The Castle View group of companies was founded in 1964 and has over 9,200 colleagues who operate in the UK. We are a privately owned group of businesses with strengths in the management of outsourcing. The scope of operations includes sports and leisure facilities management, food production, procurement and catering management systems.

Our Business

Our business is organised into 4 businesses:

• Castle View Management Services Limited provides management services to companies within the Group;
• Uin Foods Limited our chilled Pizza manufacturer;
• Inhouse Manager Limited – catering management software system supporting catering operations in schools, hospitals and care homes;
• SLM manages leisure services and delivers weight management and health improvement programs for Local Authorities.

Our Supply Chains

We engage with a wide variety of organisations for delivery of a broad range of goods and services. Our supply chain partners vary in size and structure from very small locally sourced suppliers or contractors to large national corporate institutions. We encourage smaller business to join our supply chain as this consolidates with our desires to bring social and environmental benefits to the local communities in which we operate.

Our Policies On Slavery And Human Trafficking

We will not knowingly support or deal with any business involved in modern slavery practices or human trafficking.

 

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. Our Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due Diligence Processes For Slavery And Human Trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to:

• Continually review our practices for checking all employees and apprentices are paid at least the minimum wage and have a right to work;
• Encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers;
• Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.

 

Our policies and procedures ensure that we conduct business in an ethical manner. The processes that we consider give us control in avoiding modern slavery or human trafficking under the act within our businesses are :

• Equal Opportunities Policy
• Grievance Procedure
• Recruitment and Selection Procedure
• Staff Handbook

 

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 5 April 2019.
