Did you know modern slavery exists in Wales and across the world?

Last year, over 500 potential victims of this crime were identified by First Responders in places across Wales and globally tens of millions of people are trapped in abusive and exploitative conditions of modern slavery.

This year, to mark Anti-Slavery Day on 18 October, we are organising the Anti-Slavery Wales 2023 conference. Hosted by Cardiff Business School in partnership with the Welsh Government, the police, and third sector organisations, including members of the Anti-Slavery Wales Forum, the conference will provide an opportunity to hear from and network with frontline practitioners and experts.

A high-profile array of speakers will be participating, including:

  • Hannah Blythyn MS, Deputy Minister for Social Partnership
  • Dame Sara Thornton, former Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner (2019-22)
  • Martin Plimmer, National Investigations Lead, Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority
  • Professor Rachel Ashworth, Dean and Head of Cardiff Business School

You can join the conference either online via Microsoft Teams or by attending in-person at Cardiff Business School. There are limited in-person tickets available due to the capacity of the venue – and so you are encouraged to book early.

The conference will be of interest to a wide range of people and organisations across the Welsh public, private or third sectors and we welcome and encourage participation from those who have lived experience of modern slavery.

Please contact for more information and if you have any enquiries.
