The Government are planning to mark Anti-Slavery day with a range of events including the launch of a training and referral process for the airline industry with a major United Kingdom airline.

The Government are fully committed to combating human trafficking by tackling organised crime groups and protecting the victims of this modern day slavery.

The Government published their strategy on human trafficking on 19 July. The strategy reiterates the UK’s intention to take a comprehensive approach to combating trafficking—both by focusing on tackling traffickers and maintaining effective care for victims.

The strategy also sets out our commitment to raising awareness of trafficking among the public and the private sector. The Government recognise the importance of Anti-Slavery day as an opportunity to improve understanding and increase vigilance in our communities.
