Fighting modern slavery

Help us plan how to fight modern slavery in New South Wales

Between 1,500 and 15,000 people are estimated to be in modern slavery in Australia. There are 50 million people estimated to be in modern slavery worldwide. Australian businesses may also be connected to people in modern slavery in Australia or overseas.

New South Wales is the first Australian jurisdiction with an Anti-slavery Commissioner. The Commissioner is required to develop a strategic plan to support efforts to combat modern slavery. This requires understanding where modern slavery risks exist in New South Wales. It also requires understanding where our responses are working well, and where they could work better.

We are looking for input from anyone with views on modern slavery in New South Wales and how we can best fight it.

What do you want anti-slavery action in New South Wales to look like at the end of 2025? How do we get there?

Complete a survey, share your story or send us a more formal written submission. You can participate in as many ways as you choose.

Your feedback will help us develop the NSW Anti-slavery Commissioner’s Strategic Plan 2023-2025.
