The Government does not maintain a central register of ‘slavery and human trafficking statements’ published in accordance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Two independent repository websites have been set up to collate these statements. The Government is not involved in running or funding either website. Both websites make different estimates of the total number of statements published so far. The latest estimates can be accessed online at http://www.modernslaveryregistry.org/ and https://tiscreport.org/
