Helen Randall is speaking at the inaugural Social Value and Procurement: Transparency in supply chains conference

Social Value and Procurement: Transparency in supply chains conference will be held on Monday 30th March.

On Thursday 26th March, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 received Royal Assent; this historic moment in the fight against modern slavery consolidates the current offences relating to human trafficking, slavery, forced labour and domestic servitude and enhances the support and protection of victims and gives law enforcement the tools to target modern slave drivers.

Helen Randall, Partner in Trowers & Hamlins' public sector commercial department is part of a panel speaking on Social Value at the inaugural Social Value and Procurement conference, organised by The Centre for Citizenship, Enterprise and Governance (CCEG). CCEG provides the metric platform SERATIO.com to measure above and below the Modern Slavery waterline which includes the measurement of modern slavery in the supply chain. The ratio, described by the Vatican Press in January 2015 as 'the most rapidly adopted social impact metric in the world' has the potential to lead to a workable, enforceable metric for the future.

Helen will be speaking on the next steps for Public Services Social Value Act and the Modern Slavery Act and how the legislation will translate into a contractual and procurement framework. Other members of the panel include Professor Olinga Ta'eed, CCEG; Rt Hons Hazel Blears, MP; Professor Christine Bamford, KPMG and Jim Clifford, DG Growth – Entrepreneurship & Social Economy.
