Being able to discuss the challenges facing all organisations and those in my sector in recognising and mitigating modern slavery risk was useful and informative – and the insight into our modern slavery statement (scoring via GGRF) was invaluable. I can now build a strategy to improve our Modern Slavery response and a plan as to how to improve my organisation’s statements over the coming years.
