Modern Slavery Statement

This statement sets out the steps taken to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in Impulse Leisure’s business activities in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Structure

Impulse Leisure (IL) is a non-profit-distributing-organisation providing services to two charities (Thurrock Community Leisure and Adur Community Leisure ((the Group)) managing over 10 facilities in the south east of England, mainly in partnership with local authorities. The head office is based in Essex, and the original company was formed in 2000. The annual turnover of the Group is approximately £10,000,000, with over 400 employees. IL does not have any trading activity outside of the United Kingdom.

Business

The objectives of the Group as set out in the governing documents are to run the leisure facilities and services primarily for the benefit of local communities within which the Charities operate. The Group operates in a manner that does not discriminate against any person by virtue of their age, colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion/belief, unrelated criminal convictions, gender, gender re-assignment, sexual
orientation, marital status / civil partnership, or socio-economic status. IL’s mission is to ‘Create Active & Healthy Communities’. The main activity carried out by the Group is the supply of services to the public, rather than the supply of goods.

Supply Chain

The Group’s supply chain mainly consists of the receipt of goods and services from other organisations, all of which except one (France) are based in the United Kingdom. These goods are required to deliver services to the Group’s customers. The main goods and services received relate to repairs and maintenance, equipment, cleaning, utilities, entertainment, bars and catering. As part of the review for this statement the supply chain is being asked about how they ensure they comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Procurement from suppliers is a centrally controlled function which requires the use of preapproved suppliers, meaning controls are in place for committed expenditure and also the option to complete due diligence and retrospective checks. 

Procurement policy is designed to ensure compliance with the law and in an ethical manner. All suppliers will be expected to commit to comply with all laws, regulations and the Group’s policies and terms of supply. IL takes a zero tolerance approach to abuse of human rights, slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. Any supplier that fails to meet IL standards will jeopardise future business with IL.

Safeguarding

The Group work closely with the community in all of the facilities noting that the most vulnerable groups in the UK to modern slavery could include migrant workers, illegal immigrants, asylum seekers, homeless people, travellers and people suffering from learning difficulties. Detailed procedures, operating documents and training for safeguarding are already in place and work is ongoing to educate employees on modern slavery and
identifying anyone in the community that may be at risk of abuse.

Employees

IL has strict HR policies and procedures that ensure compliance with legislation and ensures fair and equal treatment, dignity at work and prevents discrimination. Policies and operating documents are available to all staff. Staff are encouraged to report any activity they believe to be in breach of any of the Group’s operating standards or policies.

Due Diligence

IL is committed to ensuring there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of its business. IL will:

  • Identify and assess risks in the supply chain and ensure compliance from suppliers
  • Provide training for employees in these risks
  • Protect whistle blowers.
