The National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020 to 2025 provides the strategic framework for Australia’s response to modern slavery from 2020 to 2025 and is guided by 5 National Strategic Priorities:

  • prevent
  • disrupt, investigate and prosecute
  • support and protect
  • partner

The National Action Plan can be found on the Attorney-General’s Department website.

The Australian Government has invested $4.4 million (GST exclusive) as part of the National Action Plan to deliver multi-year grants programs to fund civil society, business and industry groups, and academia for activities to:

  • combat modern slavery in Australia
  • increase the capacity of businesses to respond to modern slavery in global supply chains
  • support new research to inform evidence-based policy responses to address modern slavery in Australia.

The program is comprised of 2 multi-year grant opportunities:

  • round 2 (this grant opportunity) which will be implemented by the Attorney-General’s Department over a 2-year period (2023–24 to 2025).
