Read our top tips

In their first few years, your little one needs a lot of sleep. So, it’s important to know that you are doing all you can to keep them safe while they sleep. Here are some helpful tips…

  • Choose a mattress that is firm and flat without any cushioned or raised areas, ensuring it is in tip-top condition
  • Your baby’s head shouldn’t sink into a mattress by any more than a few millimetres
  • Ensure your mattress sits with no more than a 3cm gap between the mattress and cot bed
  • When laying your little one down to sleep, always place your baby on their back
  • Never sleep with your baby on a sofa or in an armchair
  • For the first 6 months, from birth, place your baby to sleep in a separate cot but in the same room as you and never co-sleep
  • Avoid letting your little one get too hot – the ideal temperature in their room should be between 16°c – 20°c
  • Don’t cover your baby’s head or face while sleeping or use loose bedding – only after 12 months should duvets and pillows be introduced
  • Don’t place soft toys in the cot or anything that could cover your little one’s face

This is upheld through the company’s policies and governance and is supported by a committed organisation and leadership.

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps John Cotton Group Ltd are taking to eradicate and ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business. It constitutes our slavery and trafficking statement for year ending.

Supply Chain
JCG has a supply chain network that exists to support the manufacture and supply of our products as well as the network of operations relating to its day to day business operations.

Raw Materials
In addition to the supply chain for finished goods, John Cotton Group Ltd is also aware of the importance of its raw material supply chain and the sustainability of raw material suppliers.

Respect of Human Rights
JCG believes that respect for human rights is integral to being a responsible company. The prevention of forced, bonded and trafficked labour are key elements in the John Cotton Ethical Trading Policy.

Promoting Human Rights across the business

Only specifically trained and evaluated auditors are allowed to perform our audits.

For suppliers in other countries we have a program of the Smeta Ethical 2 pillar (plus extra customer requirements where required) since 2009. This is being expanded continuously. John Cotton Ltd also welcomes and submits to our specific customer’s ethical audits and requirements on our sites.

John Cotton Group specifically prohibits sourcing in regions where the risk of modern slavery and other labour issues is recognised, this includes the prohibition of cotton sourced from Uzbekistan. In 2016 JCG are expanding the commitment and core values to all our suppliers providing raw materials.

John Cotton Group Limited Non-Compliance Policy

Where improvements are not made within the given time or there is an unwillingness to address the situation JCG will terminate the business relationship. However reasonable amount of time is given to rectify non compliance to minimise any potential and / or detrimental impact on workers lives.

John Cotton Group Limited Compliance Policy
Compliance with the JCG Ethical Trading Principles is a requirement of doing business with JCG. JCG works with its suppliers to support their compliance, and may take action against those that do not demonstrate sufficient commitment to the principles, or are in breach of them. In the event of a supplier being found to be involved in modern slavery JCG will take action to help safeguard the workers well being.

In 2016 JCG are introducing training for Stronger Together for key employees. This will form part of employees Induction in the company.

Looking Ahead
JCG will continue to develop employee and supplier training and target areas of the business where there is potential risk of labour rights abuses including incidences of Modern Slavery. JCG believes that training for employees and its supply chain, with an increased emphasis on transparency throughout the supply chain may help identify modern slavery risks.
