Modern Slavery Statement


Business Sense Associates is committed to operating responsibly and establishing high ethical standards across our company. We will not tolerate modern forms of slavery or human trafficking in our business and are not taking place in the company’s business operations and supply chains. In this Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement, we describe our business and our policies and practices on human rights, including human trafficking, in relation to our operations and supply chains.

Our business

Business Sense Associates Limited is a business support provider delivering contracts on behalf of Department Work & Pensions, Welsh Government and working with intermediaries, stakeholders and supply chains across the UK.

Our structure

Business Sense Associates is headquartered in Swansea, Wales with offices in Swansea & Llanelli and also operating from JCP’s across Wales.

Our policies

Business Sense Associates maintains high business values that reflect our commitment to the highest ethical standards as every action and decision we make at all levels defines who we are as a company. Our business values apply to everyone working with or on behalf of Business Sense Associates, including employees, support staff and our supply chain. We are committed to the protection of human rights, including harassment and discrimination, workplace violence, protecting employee privacy, anti-money laundering, anti-bribery and anti-corruption. Business Sense Associates has other formal policies intended to promote ethical and legally compliant business conduct. Policies contributing to our commitment to prevent violations of human rights such as modern forms of slavery in our business include:

• Discrimination and Harassment Policy • Health and Safety Policy • Whistleblower Policy

Business Sense Associates continues to monitor relevant legal developments relating to human rights and modern slavery to maintain our commitment to operating responsibly and maintaining our high ethical standards.

Our supply chains

Business Sense Associates is committed to ensuring modern forms of slavery and human trafficking are not present in our supply chains and in our business. We expect businesses, companies, and other entities that provide, or seek to provide, any kind of good or service to Business Sense Associates, including our suppliers and contractors to respect human rights and promote similar principles in their own supply chains.

In addition, each Business Sense Associates supplier is subject to a thorough due diligence process. Our review is tailored to the type of supplier and the activities the supplier will be performing for Business Sense Associates, and may include background screening, sanctions screening, or e.g. reviews of anti-bribery controls. It is important to note that Business Sense Associates does not manufacture goods or handle raw materials. As a business support company, our suppliers are concentrated around areas such as the provision of business support, client mentoring and operational procurement (e.g., office supplies, computers, software). At present our suppliers are local or regional, fulfilling the specific needs of our offices in Wales.

Our sourcing team

Business Sense Associates Board of Directors and Contracts Manager are our Sourcing department supporting the company by identifying the best-qualified suppliers, negotiating contracts to obtain best value for the service commitments we require, to help manage supplier risk. The Sourcing team is also responsible for implementing, assessing and enforcing compliance and governance with the supplier performance management process.


Business Sense Associates is committed to transparency in our approach to respecting human rights reporting on our progress, including through this annual Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the U.K. Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement for Business Sense Associates.
