Modern Slavery 

Modern Slavery Statement for Community Matters Partnership (CMP)
Community Matters Partnership (CMP) is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), charity number 1182467, whose registered address is CMP Office, 
Sentinel House, Ancells Farm, Harvest Crescent, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 2UZ.

The object of the CIO is to relieve poverty, advance health, advance education, advance community development, promote equality and diversity and further other charitable purposes.  This is beneficial to the public by promoting volunteering and the practical interest and involvement of companies, firms, voluntary organisations, local authorities and individuals in such purposes particularly in the communities in which they have operational interests.

Pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act 2015
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 came into effect on 29th October 2015. This law requires manufacturers and retailers doing business in the UK, which supply goods or services and have an annual turnover exceeding £36 million to disclose information regarding their policies to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain and within their business. Whilst CMP is not required to provide a Modern Slavery Statement, we take our responsibility in this area very seriously, and as such have willingly provided this Statement in line with the reasonable expectations of many of the organisations with which we work on a regular basis to confirm our ongoing compliance with this important legislation.

Due Diligence
Whilst CMP has assessed that it has a very low risk of exposure to any suppliers who engage in activities which relate to or involve human trafficking or slavery, we maintain high ethical values and principles with which we expect our suppliers and partners to adhere.  We have a clause in all agreements requiring partners and suppliers to confirm their adherence to the Modern Slavery Act of 2015, which in turn requires them to fully evaluate the compliance within their respective supply chains. CMP will not engage in any business activities with or procure products or services from any organisation that has not confirmed their full compliance. We monitor the performance of all our suppliers and partners, and our agreements allow for the immediate termination of any agreement should CMP become aware of even the smallest violation of the Modern Slavery Act.
