New Research has found that there are an estimated  over 41,000 victims of modern slavery in Australia, a number that has almost doubled over the course of the last four years.

Many of the services and opportunities available for victims are inaccessible, including an inaccessibility to housing.


If you or someone you know is at risk of human trafficking or slavery, you can contact the Australian Federal Police at 131 237 to report or discuss a concern call.

You can also find support at the Australian Red Cross Support for Trafficked People Program phone line: 0393451800
