Modern Slavery

​​​​​​​The Council has published its Annual Modern Slavery Statement for 2024 to 2025​ (627kb PDF)​setting out our commitments to ensuring modern slavery and human trafficking have no place in our business and supply chains.

The statement forms part of the Council's over-arching Corporate Safeguarding Policy and sets out what we have achieved to date to tackle modern slavery. It also sets out the commitments we are making to manage and minimise the risk of slavery or trafficking occurring within day to day operations.

New figures from the National Crime Agency (NCA) show we are making a significant contribution towards tackling people trafficking and modern slavery.

In 2023, the National Crime Agency recorded 559 potential victims of trafficking in Wales, an increase from 536 in 2022. 53 of these referrals were made by Cardiff Council.​

All Council employees are required to complete training to help them identify the signs of modern slavery and to know the steps to follow in suspected cases. Multi-agency First Responder training opportunities are also available to enable employees to comply with their statutory responsibilities.

Employees across the authority have a key role to play in identifying cases of modern slavery with other public sector bodies and partners in the third sector. This is to enable the best possible response for potential victims.​
