The West Yorkshire Anti-Slavery Partnership (formerly West Yorkshire Anti-Trafficking and Modern Slavery Network) is the strategic meeting framework for frontline organisations in West Yorkshire who may encounter modern slavery or human trafficking.

Since its creation in 2014, the WYASP has successfully brought together law enforcement, local government, public services, and NGOs for the delivery of a co-ordinated response to modern slavery, as well as the continued improvement of services for the safeguarding of victims. All five West Yorkshire districts are represented; Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Kirklees and Calderdale, all of which also have their own district-level forums.

The network is facilitated by Hope for Justice, on behalf of the Police & Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire.


“West Yorkshire is taking the issue to its heart and putting it as a priority. This is something that other regions must follow.”
