Clothes Aid statement on Modern Slavery

January 2018

We are very disturbed by the recent modern slavery story in Tyneside this week, but pleased that authorities have taken firm action.

Clothes Aid works tirelessly to call on Police, Local Councils and Regulators to help eliminate bogus operators and the associated criminal activities, and urge for stronger enforcement in the future.

We uphold all laws and regulations in relation to clothes collection, fundraising and employment and are proud to have raised over £10 million for UK charities, including the NSPCC, Make-A-Wish UK, and Cancer Support UK. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

We take the welfare of all our staff and self-employed teams very seriously. All staff and contractors receive above the minimum wage, comprehensive training and regular health and safety updates.

If you have any questions, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page, or get in touch with us on social media, via our Facebook or Twitter profiles.
