Our approach

FKCL has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships, and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to endeavour to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or with those with whom we have a business relationship.

We are also committed to ensuring, through Catch22, that there is transparency in our business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We expect the same high standards from all of those with whom we have a business relationship, and as part of our contracting processes and we expect that any organisation whose information is provided on our website, or with whom we collaborate will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. Should any such organisation fail to live up to our expectations or be unwilling to make any changes we may cease to engage with them.  FKCL is an information and news resource, and it is not anticipated that circumstances will arise that might bring FKCL or Catch22 in conflict with the relevant legislation. 

Procurement process

FKCL contracts are limited to the support and maintenance of our website and are entered into on our behalf by Catch22, whose procedures are fully compliant with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Catch22 ensures that those with whom they contract on our behalf are themselves compliant, and that their procurement processes include specific measures to ensure that our compliance under the Act are observed and applied through our supply chain.
