Revised Jan 2023

This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that [Y/N] Studio has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. [Y/N] Studio has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Our Business

[Y/N] Studio was established in 2017 to provide Architectural Services to the building industry. We are based in East London and employ a number of people. [Y/N] Studio is connected to multiple entities through numerous contractual relationships across the UK and Europe.

Due Diligence

We have:
  • Made our staff aware of the Modern Slavery Act, including its definitions of slavery and human trafficking;
  • Told staff what to do if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking;
  • Established robust recruiting procedures which include UK employment eligibility checks and systematic reference checks to safeguard against individuals being forced to work against their will;
  • Commenced revision of our Whistleblowing Policy so that all employees know that they can raise concerns about practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.
  • Undertaken due diligence checks on all suppliers before allowing them to become Preferred suppliers – including online searches to ensure that a particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery.

The above procedures are designed to:
  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains;
  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains;
  • Provide adequate protection for whistleblowers.
