The Foundation is committed to playing a pivotal role in shaping anti–trafficking policies and ensuring that existing legislation is better enforced across the UK. We do this by making use of our networks to inform and mobilise those who are in a position to make a difference, such as parliamentarians, public officials, the judiciary and the business community.
As part of our public affairs strategy, we seek to:
- ensure human trafficking and modern day slavery remain high on political agenda by maintaining a steady pressure on government through parliamentary activity;
- act as a conduit between NGOs and policy makers;
- support cross-party groups in devolved administrations to help shape anti-trafficking regional policy;
- and strengthen links with Parliamentarians across Euope and learn from good practice.
The Foundation provides the Secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery. The Group played a significant part in the passing of the Modern Slavery Act and now looks to make sure the legislation is effectively implemented.
The APPG meets regularly to discuss issues relating to the protection and support of victims, as well as prosecution of their traffickers.
