Partnership vision

Working together to fight slavery and support victims of slavery in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Achieving this by implementing the Government's Modern Slavery Strategy within Hampshire & Isle of Wight:

  • Pursue: Prosecute and disrupt individuals and groups responsible for modern slavery.
  • Prevent: Prevent people from engaging in and being a victim of modern slavery.
  • Protect: Strengthen safeguards against modern slavery by protecting vulnerable people from exploitation and increasing awareness of and resilience against this crime.
  • Prepare: Reduce the harm caused by modern slavery through improved victim identification and enhanced support.

We want to equip the community with the skills, knowledge and tools to be able to:

  1. Identify modern slavery in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight
  2. Support potential victims of modern slavery
  3. Support the police in ensuring that the perpetrators face appropriate consequences for their actions
  4. Disrupt, disable and eliminate modern slavery in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight altogether

We will do this by:

  1. Facilitating the space to enable partners to network and share resources and ideas about how to achieve the aims of the partnership
  2. Providing resources and materials to make it easy for partners to educate themselves on the issues and seek further advice
  3. Providing bespoke awareness training and conferences to ensure all in our counties have a high level of understanding of the issue of modern slavery
  4. Providing a Single Point of Contact (SPOC)
