The APPG on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, with cross-party membership of MPs and Peers, meets to provide a relatively informal forum for evidence-based discussion as to the nature and scale of modern slavery and to seek the means to eradicate it. It was founded in 2006 by Anthony Steen CBE and prior to the 2017 general election was co-chaired by Rt Hon Fiona Mactaggart and Baroness Butler-Sloss. The Group played a significant part in the passing of the Modern Slavery Act and now looks to make sure the legislation is effectively implemented, meeting regularly to discuss issues relating to the protection and support of victims and prosecution of their traffickers.
The Human Trafficking Foundation provides the secretariat to the APPG. This is an essential element of The Foundation's work to inform and mobilise those parliamentarians who are in a position to make a difference.
Baroness Butler-Sloss (Chair)
Jess Phillips MP (Vice-Chair)
Maggie Throup MP (Secretary)
The APPG will host its AGM on 12th September.
