Homeworkers Worldwide (HWW) and Cividep India, in collaboration with Traidcraft Exchange, have developed a practical toolkit for brands called “Finding Hidden Homeworkers in Apparel & Footwear Chains”, which The Centre has contributed to. The toolkit will be launched at an online event on Tuesday, October 5 at 10-11am (BST).
The Centre has been deeply engaged in homeworker issues and in 2019 published an in-depth study with Save the Children on child rights in homeworker settings. Read the study here.
With additional mandatory human rights due diligence requirements on the horizon, it is critical that brands and suppliers fulfil their due diligence responsibilities related to homeworkers in supply chain. The Centre is available to assist brands through risk and impact assessments in homeworking contexts, to strengthen transparency and identify salient child right and human rights issues. We also run training and capability building programmes for homeworkers.
The Centre will be participating in a panel discussion during the launch of the launch of the toolkit, sharing insights on transparency issues in homeworker settings and why it’s important for companies to have a homeworker policy.
