FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2020
This statement is made by Park Leisure Group Limited, company registration number 10609435 (we, us, our or the Company) pursuant to section 54, Part 5 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (Act). It constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ended 31 December 2020 and sets out the steps taken that aim to ensure that slavery or human trafficking did not take place in our business and supply chain.
The Company operates as Park Leisure Group Limited, with operating businesses Park Leisure 2000 Ltd, Park Leisure 2000 (Northumberland)Ltd and Park Leisure 2000 (Northumberland) Ltd. The group has approximately 450 employees and is based in the UK.
Our Business & Supply Chain
Park Leisure is a UK holiday home and short-break holiday business. We operate eleven specially constructed holiday home parks in the United Kingdom. Our supply chains include the procurement of goods and services necessary for the operation of holiday homes including sale of holiday homes and the re-sale of goods and services to our guests.
We are committed to eradicating modern slavery and human trafficking in any part of our business and supply chain. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. This is part of our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls that aim to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chain. We try to ensure that we work with UK and international suppliers who treat their obligations towards modern slavery and human trafficking with the same importance that we do.
During FY19/20 we started to put in place systems and procedures to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas across our supply chain – using a risk-based approach we have looked at supplier spend, location and type of product or service.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chain - by requiring key suppliers to complete a modern slavery questionnaire and to sign our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement. We require our suppliers to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not occur within their supply chain.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chain – by collating and assessing the modern slavery questionnaires and taking remedial action where necessary and including modern slavery and human trafficking questions within all relationship review meetings.
- Provided initial training on our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy to all key employees.
The above project has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we hope to resume this project in 2021.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain and our business, we will be providing training, initially to our procurement teams and plan to roll out the training to all our employees.
Currently, our employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our policies through our whistle-blowing hotline. Details can be found in our colleague handbook and online training platform.
We also plan to review our general terms and conditions and key contracts to include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children.
Based on the above, we consider that our policies and procedures are continuing to evolve to a reasonable level of assurance of minimising the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and our supply chain.
The publication of this statement has been slightly delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
