Care providers, Availl


Anti-Slavery and Trafficking Statement 2019 This statement is made on behalf of Availl with regards to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 which requires large employers to be transparent about their efforts to eradicate Slavery and Human Trafficking in their supply chain.

Founded in 2007, Availl has proved itself as a safe, reliable and stable care provider.

We are an experienced care provider offering our clients care in their own homes and temporary staff into care homes.

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. We do not believe there to be any high risk operations within the work of Availl and its supply chains with regards to modern slavery and human trafficking.

Our Anti-slavery Statement 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.


We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:

  • Whistleblowing Policy, aimed principally at our employees but also available to others working in our supply chains which encourages staff to report any wrongdoing which extends to human rights violations like Modern Slavery.
  • Complaints Policy. Whilst aimed at receiving complaints or concerns about our care provision or conduct, all complaints received will be fully investigated and appropriate remedial actions taken and we will work closely with our social care and health partners ensuring our safeguarding policies and procedures dovetail with local procedures and best practice.
  • A robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard.
  • Anti-Bribery Policy, it is our policy to conduct all of our business in an honest and ethical manner. We are committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships.

We have in place systems to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistle blowers

The Company confirms that prior to any supplier being included in our supply chain they have policies and procedures that are congruent with our intention to combat slavery and human trafficking.

If suppliers do not have their own Modern Slavery statement/policy, we will make our statement available and obtain assurances of the supplier’s commitment to follow prior to supply commencing. If, after supply commences, we believe there is an actual breach or risk of breach, we will investigate this following our Complaints and/or Serious Untoward Incident Policy. To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, our employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery policy and we have in place protection for whistle blowers.

Direct Communication

The Company encourages members of the public or people not employed by us to write, in confidence, to the Company’s Director to raise any concern, issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business.

We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:

  • No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies or local safeguarding teams to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.


We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our business. Detrimental treatment includes dismissal, disciplinary action, threats or other unfavourable treatment connected with raising a concern. The Company will accept and take seriously concerns communicated anonymously. However, retention of anonymity does render investigations and validation more difficult and can make the process less effective. Individuals are therefore encouraged to put their names to allegations. Any claims or allegations made which are found to be malicious or vexatious will result in disciplinary action being taken against the individual.

Staff are hereby informed of the Modern Slavery Helpline on 0800 0121 700 should further advice or guidance be required.
