We have introduced a number of unique initiatives to tackle slavery in Wales.

Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator

The current Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator is Stephen Chapman. His role is to make Wales hostile to slavery and to co-ordinate the best possible support for survivors.

We are the only government within the UK to employ an Anti-Slavery Co-ordinator following a recommendation from the Cross Party Group on Slavery. The post has been in existence since April 2011.

Wales Anti-Slavery Leadership Group

The Group provides strategic leadership for tackling slavery in Wales and co-ordinates collaboration between devolved and non-devolved partners and third sector organisations.

The Group's strategic objectives are to:

  • build an evidence base using primary and secondary data sets to better assess the scale of slavery in Wales
  • scope a needs analysis of training which is currently being delivered in Wales and future requirements
  • develop intelligence/information sharing protocols
  • establish a Wales anti-slavery communications engagement plan
  • identify and encourage good practice in victim care.
