Priority 3: Partnerships
To identify, promote and facilitate best practice in partnership working, and to encourage improved data sharing and high quality research into key issues

Why partnerships?

Modern slavery is a complex and multi-faceted issue which requires a comprehensive, multidisciplinary response from government departments, law enforcement agencies and civil society organisations. Coordinated partnerships between these groups are vitally important in ensuring an effective and sustained response.

Such partnerships should share information, intelligence and experience, leverage resources and allow for strategic planning. They must be focused on achieving clear, overarching outcomes: increased identification of potential victims, improved care and support for victims, and increased investigations and prosecutions of the criminals.
