We firmly oppose all forms of modern slavery, including forced labor, human trafficking, and other exploitative practices. This Modern Slavery Act Statement reflects our dedication to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking have no place within our organisation and supply chains.

Organizational Structure and Supply Chain

ADASUK is an alcohol and drugs advisory service operating primarily in the United Kingdom. Our organisational structure comprises employees, volunteers, and contracted service providers. We recognise the potential risks of modern slavery in our operations, and we are actively taking measures to prevent and address such issues.

Supplier Code of Conduct: We require our suppliers and contractors to adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct, which explicitly forbids any form of modern slavery or unethical labor practices.

Recruitment Practices: Our recruitment processes are designed to ensure that all employees and volunteers are legally eligible to work in the UK and are not subject to any form of exploitation or coercion.

Reporting Mechanisms: We have established clear channels for reporting any concerns or suspicions related to modern slavery within our organisation, encouraging transparency and accountability.

Training and Awareness: We provide training and awareness programs to our employees, volunteers, and contractors to educate them about modern slavery issues, recognition, and prevention.

Risk Assessment and Due Diligence

We continuously assess the risk of modern slavery within our supply chains and organisational operations. Our due diligence processes include:

Conducting regular supplier and contractor assessments to identify any potential risks of modern slavery or exploitation.

Monitoring and evaluating our suppliers and contractors to ensure they comply with our ethical standards.

Conducting site visits and audits to verify the conditions and treatment of workers in our supply chains, when necessary.

Collaborating with industry partners and organisations to stay informed about modern slavery issues and best practices for prevention.


ADASUK holds its employees, volunteers, and contractors accountable for upholding our commitment to preventing modern slavery. Failure to comply with our policies and ethical standards will result in appropriate actions, which may include the termination of business relationships or employment.
