Training and Advisory

We offer training programs to increase awareness about all forms of modern slavery, the indicators of modern slavery, protections that are available, best practice and referral pathways. We also offer training about the Australian Modern Slavery Act and the supply chain reporting requirements.

We deliver training to frontline service providers, business, law enforcement, community and government, the health care sector, not for profits, students and educators.

For many years we have provided access to free training to all sectors of the community. In addition to our free training, we have developed new training programs with a registration fee.

As a not-for-profit organisation, Anti-Slavery Australia uses all proceeds from our training registration fees to enable us to provide free legal and migration services to survivors of modern slavery in Australia.
