Plan a Fundraiser

Why not hold a fundraiser event to support Anti-Slavery Australia? Anyone can do it! Host a tea party, film screening, race or trivia night with friends and colleagues to help us continue our work. You could involve you family, school, your local church or company and educate others while raising money that will benefit people in need, right here in Australia.

We are here to help you along the way and guide you through the process of fundraising for Anti-Slavery Australia. Contact us ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) to get started!

Why fundraise for Anti-Slavery Australia?

It is estimated that there are over 40 million slaves around the world right now, including here in Australia. Anti-Slavery Australia is the only specialist legal service for victims of human trafficking and slavery in Australia and has over 14 years of hands on experience with clients. We help over 80 clients at any one time who have been enslaved in households, kitchens, brothels, building sites, factories and farms all across Australia. Some have been forced to marry, and most have been forced to work. Most of our clients have come from abroad hoping for a better life but are soon working 16 hour days, 7 days a week with no pay and no freedom of movement. They are often subject to physical, emotional and sexual abuse on top of their already terrible work conditions.

We provide our clients access to much needed services including migration advice, and legal advice on other issues incidental to their experience of trafficking and slavery. We help them with compensation matters, and have seen over one million dollars awarded to our clients in the form of compensation as victims of crime. Our relationship with other organisations also allows them access to counselling, housing, health care and other vital services.

Your fundraising helps us:

  • Offer specialised legal support to survivors including exploring their migration options and pursuing compensation
  • Connect survivors with important support services
  • Research emerging issues in forced labour, human trafficking and forced marriage
  • Raise awareness and empower your community to take a stand against slavery
  • Inspire communities to learn what trafficking and slavery is and how to respond appropriately
  • Educate people who are vulnerable to trafficking

Where does the money go?

Donations go directly to support Anti-Slavery Australia's work with victims of trafficking and slavery. This includes:

  • Legal work
  • Research and advocacy
  • Outreach

All money goes directly to fund projects where it is most needed. We are based at the Faculty of Law at the University of Technology Sydney, so our administrative costs are met allowing us to extend our operation to help those who need it. We have a wonderful team of legal and outreach volunteers who allow us to keep our costs down and our service thorough and effective.

We are registered as a gift receiving charity which means that all donations over $2 are tax deductable.
