Modern Slavery Statement

For the financial year ending 31 December 2018

Sandicliffe has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. We aim to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure Modern Slavery is not taking place within our own business and our supply chains. Modern slavery is a crime and violation of human rights, which could be classed as slavery, the deprivation of a person’s liability by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. This statement sets out the steps we are taking to ensure slavery and human trafficking is are not taking place in any of our supply chains or businesses and is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Act. The statement applies to group of companies headed up by Sandicliffe Motor Holdings Limited.

Sandicliffe is a UK based retail and service provider. Our main activities concern the sale, hire and servicing of new and used passenger and commercial vehicles to the general public and businesses. We supply parts and accessories and also provide finance to enable consumers to purchase vehicles. The group consists of approximately 700 employees based across the East Midlands.

Sandicliffe’s main suppliers are global vehicle manufactures and franchises, which supply the groups vehicles and parts. In addition to this we have commercial agreements with finance and insurance providers, system suppliers and training providers. Sandicliffe also uses providers for oil, valeting, stationary supplies and cleaning. We encourage our suppliers to adopt similar policies in their own organisations. We are committed to working with our colleagues and suppliers to remedy or mitigate risks. We require suppliers to certify that they do not participate in any forced or involuntary labour with their workers, subcontractors, agents or associates. This is evaluated as part of the tender process.

We have internal policies, which are covered during Induction and are available to employees during their employment, such as Whistleblowing, Anti-Bribery, Equality Act, Anti-bullying and Health and Safety. Our policies are reviewed annually by the Human Resources Department/legal advisors to remain complaint.

Sandicliffe’s Standards: • Safe and Lawful Working conditions • No child Labour • No Forced Labour or Modern Slavery • Fair wages and benefits • No discrimination • Respectful treatment of employees • Freedom of association for example - employees can join a Trade Union, if they wish, with no detriment to their employment. We do not believe our KPIs make our business and supply chain vulnerable to modern slavery.

• Awareness Training We plan to introduce modern slavery information on to one of our online training platforms, which will ensure all employees are aware of the Act. We will be able to recognise from the results the areas, which need further training on this. Communicate our Statement to our suppliers. • Risk Assessments Understand our main areas of risk in our supply chain. Understand the suppliers we deal with in more detail, to help understand their approach and how they deal with Modern Slavery so we can collaborate and tackle modern slavery together. Require suppliers and third parties to declare their modern slavery statements to us • Measuring effectiveness (KPIs) Develop KPIs to monitor our risk assessments and ensure our checks are working.
