Stockport Council published its first Modern
Slavery Statement in April 2019. This outlines what the Council is
doing to ensure its supply chains do not have links to modern
slavery. The Council undertook to review the Statement annually,
and this report summarises the first such review.
The Cabinet noted that in September 2018, the Council Meeting approved a motion condemning the practice of modern slavery and the Council has subsequently signed a Modern Slavery Charter.
One of the Charter’s commitments was to publish a Modern Slavery Statement that sets out the measures the council has implemented to ensure its supply chains are not linked to modern slavery, as well as further measures it intends to implement.
The Cabinet has therefore given approval to the adoption of the second iteration of the Stockport Council Modern Slavery Statement for the period up to 31 March 2022 as detailed in the report.
