Modern Slavery Statement

RE:GEN Group Limited provides a comprehensive range of services including scaffolding, groundworks and general construction activities. The group has regular and repeat contracts with major house builders, local authorities and housing associations, as well as a steady stream of work for small building firms and private clients.

The company operates in the North East of England and a full description of the business and services can be found on our website.


RE:GEN Group Limited is against any form of human trafficking and modern slavery and we act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We are committed to:

Working with our clients, customers, and supply chain to combat the risk of human trafficking and modern slavery within our supply chain or in any part of our business; and

Implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls designed to address the risk of human trafficking and modern slavery throughout our operations.


Our supply chain supports our businesses and enables us to provide services to our clients and customers. It comprises a wide range of suppliers, from small/medium enterprises (SMEs) to global corporates, across many authorities.

We continue to pursue preferred supplier agreements with our strategic supply chain, developing and building on long-standing relationships and formalising agreements.

To illustrate the breadth of our supply chain, it encompasses products and services from construction and engineering materials, plant machinery, personal protective equipment (PPE), through to IT hardware and software, recruitment agents and training providers. This range means that we consider our supply chain to be our primary area of risk from a human trafficking and modern slavery perspective.


We recognise that certain types of suppliers are likely to give rise to a higher risk of human trafficking and modern slavery, particularly those utilising lower-wage staff such as security, couriers, cleaning, and those utilising manufacturers in low-wage countries, such as IT hardware.

Where, through risk assessment, we perceive a particular risk of human trafficking and modern slavery, we will undertake enhanced due diligence, asking additional questions during the procurement process tailored to the specific risks and utilising the resources and influence available to us to ensure the
supplier meets acceptable standards.


We have undertaken a review of our procurement process and identified opportunities where we can reduce the risk of human trafficking and modern slavery in our supply chain. The result of that review is to introduce a set of checkpoints throughout the procurement process, from initial sourcing, through to contract approval, to ensure that at each stage the risks are considered, and appropriate information is gathered and that supplier selection decisions are taken in the light of the risk of human trafficking and modern slavery.​

We also require our suppliers and sub-contractors to have and maintain appropriate policies and procedures to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking does not occur in their own supply chains.


We understand the importance of active monitoring and auditing of our supply chain to ensure and maintain compliance. We will undertake regular risk assessments to identify any increased risk or potential for modern slavery to occur in our supply chain and review our policies and procedures to ensure they respond to and mitigate any risks identified.

Our supply chain questionnaire is issued each year to key suppliers, as well as at the outset of each relationship and upon renewals, to ensure that we can monitor on-going compliance and improvements amongst our supply chain.


Any changes to our procurement process are communicated to all employees who have responsibility for suppliers and buying through training and policies.

Our Modern Slavery Act Policy is made available to all employees online and referred to during our induction process.​


All our employees have a written contract of employment. The right to work in the UK is established prior to their employment starting. All employees are made aware of their statutory rights during the induction process.​


This Statement is made in accordance to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes RE:GEN Group Limited’s human trafficking and modern slavery statement for the financial year 2022/2023.

The Management team is responsible for implementing this Statement and providing adequate resources, training and investment to ensure that human trafficking and modern slavery is prevented from taking place within our organisation or its supply chain.

This statement will be reviewed annually and made publicly available on our website.
