The South Yorkshire Modern Slavery Partnership (SYMSP) is a multi-agency group funded by the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner to strengthen the area’s response to modern slavery.
What is Modern Slavery?
Modern Slavery is an umbrella term for activities involving the exploitation of person(s) for the benefit of others; it includes, slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking.
We are a group of statutory and non-statutory organisations which meet on a voluntary basis to ensure South Yorkshire is a place of safety for survivors, a hostile area for those who exploit others and a leading influence on national priorities relating to modern slavery and human trafficking.
Resources & Training
Resources and training are available to equip frontline professionals, those working in the community, and the public across South Yorkshire, with the knowledge of what modern slavery is and the confidence to respond appropriately.
