Many different organisations and agencies assist in pursuing those responsible for modern slavery.

This page provides information on the powers and enforcement roles of councils, and highlights relevant work by other agencies such as the Modern Slavery Police Transformation Unit and Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority.  Some examples are also provided of local approaches to enforcement.
