WE CAN HELP

Australia has introduced a new Modern Slavery Act (MSA) requiring large businesses to submit an annual Modern Slavery Statement and train their staff on the issue of modern-day slavery.

The Freedom Hub is an Australian anti-slavery organisation, experienced in running a successful ethical business with slave-free supply chains. ALL profits from our social enterprises are allocated to fight global slavery and to help victims in Australia recover.

With over 14 years of experience working with victims of slavery; working on many advisory groups both within Australia and overseas; the Freedom Hub is the ideal organisation to provide compliance training for all business enterprises, large and small.

Our MSA WORKSHOPS for small businesses (under $50 million in revenue), who want to submit a voluntary statement are an introductory  ‘get started’ package.

Small businesses will want to DIY as much as possible to save money. We will ensure you have the practical ‘how to’ on checking your supply chain for the risk of slavery. We will equip you with a clear understanding of compliance with the law, and help you begin to write your MSA statement. We will show you how to leverage these new market opportunities, how to be a purpose-driven business, how to increase sales through ethical values and how to be a leader within your industry.

For large businesses (over $50 million in revenue) wanting to submit a statement, we offer bespoke TRAINING on Modern Slavery for your board, your employees and your suppliers.

We also help large businesses with assessing the procedures, operations and supply chains of their organisation and suppliers. We offer an easy Risk Assessment and Measurement Platform (R.A.M.P) to help you ramp up your response to modern slavery.

Finally, we can also help your oganisation with REMEDIATION processes for victims of slavery.

Every entity is different so a one on one chat would benefit large organisations more. We will help you discern your risks of slavery and develop the next best steps for your company.
