Swindon and Wiltshire

The Swindon and Wiltshire Anti-Slavery Partnership was established in January 2016 and establishes a link with the existing Regional Anti-Slavery Partnership, which covers the whole of the South West of England.

Our partnership aims to ensure that agencies collaborate in the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery, both in action on the ground as well as through information sharing and strategic thinking. It brings together Wiltshire and Swindon local authorities, the HMRC, the Home Office, regional crime agencies, NGOs and other organisations, in order to end the practice of human trafficking and modern slavery across the county.

This exciting partnership is in the process of establishing four ‘task & finish’ groups. These will introduce a communications strategy to raise awareness of trafficking and slavery across the county, share intelligence to tackle the bring together practitioners already supporting victims, plan multi-agency operational activities.

  • Commitment from a wide range of agencies to bring together NGOs across the county
  • Increased awareness of trafficking and slavery through a communications strategy
  • Planned operational activity to disrupt the activities of trafficking and slavery by targetting the networks, organised crime groups and perpetrators of trafficking and slavery in the county.
  • Sourcing of 'go-bags' to provide victims with essential items
