The Australian Government is committed to taking action to eradicate modern slavery, and to protect and support victims of these crimes.
This is why the Government is developing a new 5 year National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020‑24, to drive the strategic direction of Australia’s response to these crimes.
The new National Action Plan will build on Australia’s current efforts and initiatives under the
National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking and Slavery 2015-19. This includes implementation of Australia’s world-leading
Modern Slavery Act 2018.
Updates on the development of the National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020‑24 will be posted on this webpage.
We are calling for submissions from businesses and business groups, civil society, academia and members of the Australian community to help shape the next National Action Plan.
We welcome written submissions providing feedback on the public consultation paper -
National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery 2020-24.
Consultation questions are included to guide feedback.
Send your submissions by no later than 31 January 2020 to
