Modern Slavery

LPW School Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.

 

Introduction

LPW is an organisation of professionals, volunteers and activists that work across the majority of socially deprived communities across Bristol. Through our integrated ‘Community first’ model, we seek to create a new sense of neighbourhood in communities that had previously been overlooked by many. We believe that regardless of background and starting point, individuals can join together to overcome barriers and reach their potential.

As an organisation we work to unite people by inspiring, informing, equipping and mobilising communities to:

  • Know what trafficking is

  • Know how to identify it and how to respond

  • Know how to protect themselves and others

 

This statement sets out LPW’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its running and the integration of steps that sim to ensure that there is no slavery or human tracking within its organisation. We are determined that there shall be no modern slavery or human trafficking in LPW.

 

As part of the education sector, LPW recognises that is has a responsibility to take a robust, clear and consistent approach to slavery and human trafficking. LPW is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its mission to deliver exceptional education at the heart of its community, and, to ensuring that any multiagency collaborated with are also free from slavery and human trafficking.
