Modern slavery and human trafficking
This statement sets out Rocketship Solutions Limited’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains.
As a small family run business, we are not legally required to produce a modern slavery statement, and we are concerned that such statements are often ‘tick box’ exercises to demonstrate compliance, but which do nothing to change behaviour.
However, we have chosen to produce this statement for two reasons:
- Just because we are a small business doesn’t mean that we can’t have big ideas, and one of those ideas is that we should challenge bigger organisations to take these responsibilities more seriously.
- We believe that everyone has a responsibility to act to make the world a fairer place for everyone.
As a family business we have complete control over our own work and we are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Organisational structure and supply chains
We are a small, family run, primarily home-based business based in the United Kingdom. We design and develop learning solutions for our clients, help them to build the capability to design and develop their own learning solutions, and consult on learning strategy.
We are based in the UK and most of our clients are also in the UK, but because we work almost entirely virtually, we do work with clients, or client offices, all around the world.
Our supply chain is mostly limited to the procurement of good and services that allow us to deliver digital services to our clients. This is primarily computer hardware, computer software and online services for data storage and communication. We also procure general utilities (such as power and water) and basic items such as stationery.
Although we do not deem any of these to be high risk supplies, we recognise that human beings are involved in the design, production, and delivery of every one of them, and therefore none of them are free from risk.
We choose suppliers who have made their own commitments to eradicating slavery and human trafficking from their own activities and their supply chains.
Our anti-slavery initiatives are the full responsibility of the company’s two owner/directors.
Relevant policies and due diligence
As a small family business, we do not have separate polices – we talk to each other, and we follow the guiding principles that we will do no harm and strive to leave the world a better place.
