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 allow information, intelligence and experience to be shared between members, and be strategically focused on achieving clear, overarching outcomes. The key outcomes should include an increased identification of potential victims, improved care and support for victims, and an increase in the number of successful criminal investigations and prosecutions.
