HHG is committed to providing efficient, effective and high quality services to all service users whilst also ensuring that these services represent value for money. It is rated within the top 20 providers for Care Quality Commission compliance and as a Top 20 care provider by


This statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps HHG has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its supply chains or in any part of its business.

HHG has a zero tolerance towards modern slavery and human trafficking. Any identified concern regarding modern slavery and human trafficking will be escalated as part of HHG’s safeguarding process, working in conjunction with the Care Quality Commission, local authority agencies and the NHS.

HHG adheres to a series of policies and processes to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking, which include:

  • Policies and systems to encourage the reporting of any concern and the protection of whistle blowers.
  • A dedicated Safeguarding Lead.
  • A Safeguarding Adult Policy, which identifies and defines Modern Slavery and how HHG will react and deal with any identified safeguarding concern.
  • Mandatory Safeguarding training (Level 1) provided to all HHG employees regardless of their role within the company.
  • A review of existing supplier and contractor arrangements and procurement including an evaluation of their compliance with the Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Act.
  • Requesting that all suppliers and contractors make a statement to HHG to confirm compliance with requirements of the legislation irrespective of whether they are required to publish a statement.
  • Raising the profile of modern slavery and human trafficking and the preventative measures available to HHG and its staff
