Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement


This statement sets out the actions we are taking at World of Books Group to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains. This statement relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024.

The organisation recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.

The organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Organisational structure and supply chains

This statement covers the activities of World of Books Group: • Buyer of second-hand books and media • Online seller of second-hand books and media • Developer of software

The organisation currently operates in the following countries: • World of Books Group has offices in the UK, USA, Australia and Hungary.

World of Books Group collects from Charitable Organisations based in the UK and its processing operations are all based within the UK with the work conducted by its own employees. All employees are paid at least the appropriate National Minimum Wage.

The organisation, therefore, considers there to be a very low risk in relation to slavery and human trafficking so has taken no specific action in relation to these relationships.

We are putting in place a process to audit existing suppliers and to develop a supplier approval process for new suppliers going forward.


Responsibility for the organisation’s anti-slavery initiatives will be with the CEO.


Given what World of Books Group understands to be a low risk profile for a supplier of goods, no specific training is provided or undertaken by us in relation to these matters. World of Books Group will continue to assess any additional measures required as it acquires new suppliers or offers different business activities.

Due diligence

The organisation will undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers.


This statement has been approved by the CEO, who will review and update it annually.
