Anti-Slavery Australia recognised for valuable contribution by Minister for Justice

Anti-Slavery Australia at UTS has been recognised by The Hon Michael Keenan MP, Minister for Justice; for our "valuable contribution to Australia's response to Human Trafficking through direct service provision and awareness raising." The Minister has approved funding of $360,000, to be provided over 2014 - 2017 financial years, to support Anti-Slavery Australia to continue work combating human-trafficking and slavery and raising awareness of these issues in the community and with vulnerable groups.


Anti-Slavery Australia is delighted to receive this grant. We have researched and advocated for men, women and children who have experienced human trafficking and slavery for over 10 years and value the cooperative relationship between government, academia and community. ACRATH, Project Respect and Scarlet Alliance have also been recognised for their tremendous work in this area and we warmly congratulate them. Respectful collaboration and trust have been characteristic of the anti-human trafficking environment in Australia and we value the hard work and dedication of our partner organisations.

Anti-Slavery Australia will use this Commonwealth funding to continue to provide specialist immigration and legal advice and representation to trafficked people, to raise awareness about human trafficking and slavery amongst the general community, vulnerable groups and frontline officers, and to run specialised training programs including our new online learning tool.
