This modern slavery statement is prepared on behalf of Bailey Caravans and the following subsidiaries, brands or associated companies.
For the purposes of this statement, Bailey Caravans, brands or associated companies will be referred to simply as ‘Bailey’.
The requirement to publish such a statement is triggered by Bailey having a turnover greater than £36million per annum.
Bailey is based in the UK and assembles caravans and motorhomes from its sites in the UK. Bailey also sources and supplies caravanning-related accessories to 3rd party retailers and direct to customers.
Arrangement of this Statement
This Modern Slavery Statement is separated into three parts, representing three different business areas that may touch upon the issues of Modern Slavery;
- Bailey employees and agency workers
- Single component supply chain
- Multi component / composite supply chain
Part 1 – Bailey Employees and Agency Workers
All Bailey employees and agency workers are based in the UK at one of a small number of Bailey sites. As a result, understanding and protecting against the risks of modern slavery within the Bailey workforce is relatively straightforward and is perceived to be very low risk in terms of modern slavery.
Approximately 85% of Bailey’s workforce are direct employees of Bailey or associated companies. The remainder 15% are agency workers recruited through local, well respected employment agencies.
Direct employees of Bailey are paid by bank transfer, and all necessary paperwork as to each worker’s employment entitlement and status is held centrally.
Agency workers are provided by two local agencies. As part of the contract held with each agency the agency must ensure that, each employee has the necessary paperwork to ensure they have a right to work in the UK and Bailey receives from each agency proof of this right to work. Agency workers are paid via their agency.
As a result of the perceived very low risk, Bailey does not envisage taking any further steps in relation to modern slavery and its own workforce in the coming year.
Part 2 – Single Component/Item Supply Chain
As part of the assembly process, an average Bailey caravan or motorhome will use approximately individual components or items. This will vary depending on make and model.
Looking at the overall supply chain for individual components and items the following chart represents the region of origin for each supplier.
