What We Do
1 in 200 people are victims of modern slavery. We’re on a mission to change that.
Our work with survivors of modern slavery informs everything we do.
Free Legal and Migration Services
For over 16 years, we have been the only specialist centre providing free legal and migration services to people who have experienced or are at risk of modern slavery in Australia.
Our clients contact us directly through our national advice hotline or My Blue Sky, our dedicated forced marriage website. They are also referred to us by the Australian Federal Police, Australian Red Cross, and other community support organisations.
We have assisted hundreds of clients across every state and territory in Australia, who have been trafficked, enslaved or forced to marry in Australia.
Through our holistic, person-centred approach, we help our clients navigate the legal process including providing advice and assistance on immigration, citizenship, employment law, family law, criminal law and victims’ compensation.
Our work enables survivors of modern slavery build positive futures for themselves and their families.
Research and Advocacy
Our research is grounded on a unique combination of practical, firsthand experience with survivors, coupled with academic rigour as part of the UTS Faculty of Law.
We conduct research, work in partnership and undertake commissioned work.
Our research areas include modern slavery, human trafficking, forced marriage, dowry abuse, online sexual exploitation of children, asylum seeker exploitation, survivors’ perspectives and modern slavery reporting requirements.
As the only specialist organisation which works directly with victims of modern slavery as well as a range of community, government and industry partners, we are uniquely placed to provide advice and support on issues of victim identification, remediation and reparations.

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 victims of modern slavery in Australia.
