When to use this model modern slavery and human trafficking statement

Use this model statement to help your organisation to prepare a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year. The statement should be adapted to represent accurately steps your organisation has taken during the financial year.

The Home Office has said that organisations that need to delay the publication of their modern slavery statement by up to six months because of coronavirus-related pressures will not be penalised. The reason for the delay should be explained in the statement. See Introduction for additional sample wording and Warning below for more information on the amended timescales.
