Terms of reference

Clear terms of reference help to establish and govern the activities of anti-slavery partnerships.

There is no single model but features may include:

  • A statement of vision, purpose and objectives
  • Information on the partnership structure
  • A list of members, with roles and responsibilities
  • Accountability and decision making processes
  • Expectations – for instance regarding frequency of meetings
  • Protocols for action, such as information sharing or joint commissioning

This page includes examples of terms of reference from anti-slavery partnerships, as well as a template.
