OGGL is committed to ensuring modern slavery does not exist in its organisation or supply chains. We constantly strive to develop policy and procedures to manage the way we obtain our goods and services to keep our supply chains robust. To date we have had no reports of modern slavery within our organisation nor our supply chains.

Supply chain

OGGL continues to assess the modern slavery standards of our key suppliers having implemented, in early 2020 more formal, automated, risk-based supplier due diligence process.

We are diligent on assessing on whether we have any high risk spend areas and on raising awareness across all staff, from the Executive team through to everyone at our places of work to ensure all products and services are sourced and supplied responsibly and ethically.

Staff and volunteer wellbeing

OGGL has a clear framework of rules and behaviours and encourages the reporting of any concerns or breaches so that they can be dealt with appropriately in accordance with our policies and procedures.

We have reviewed and revised our safeguarding instruction, procedures and framework to ensure we recognise, report and respond to all concerns or incidents of safeguarding. We are committed to keeping all our people safe from harm and abuse; this includes children, adults at risk and anyone who comes into contact with OGGL.

We offer an independent and confidential Whistleblowing hotline where staff and volunteers can raise concerns confidentially and anonymously if they wish. Our Employee Assistance Programme also provides staff with a secure way of seeking advice about any modern slavery or human trafficking issues personally affecting them or their families.

OGGL checks that staff can demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK and requires all contractors and agency staff to undergo an eligibility check before commencing work with OGGL.
