General Enquiries



The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner is an independent monitoring body of the Home Office. The Commissioner’s remit is set out in Part 4 of the Modern Slavery Act. The Commissioner is precluded from exercising any authority relating to individual cases. This does not prevent the Commissioner considering individual cases and drawing conclusions about them for the purpose of, or in the context of, considering a general issue.

As of May 2022 the Office of the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner is in an interim period awaiting the appointment of the next Commissioner. 


Press and Media



We frequently receive media requests to speak with individual victims and survivors of modern slavery. Whilst we recognise the impact of a human story, we encourage media interest which seeks to represent victims and survivors with dignity and agency.

Please note that we do not put press or media directly in touch with victims and survivors of modern slavery for safeguarding reasons.

Research Requests

Please note: Our online form for research requests is temporarily closed.


The Commissioner has a statutory remit to support relevant research on modern slavery. Research should align with the Commissioner’s priorities. Please see: Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner Strategic Plan 2019-2021 and Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner Research Priorities 2021.

We support research which aims to improve the evidence base and addresses the key challenges faced by policy makers and practitioners. We encourage research which considers impact, evaluation and which has the best interests of survivors at its core. Please see: Preparing for Impact: How we can overcome barriers and cultivate a culture of collaboration, understanding, and repect to achieve impact on survivor support

The Commissioner has agreed a protocol with the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham on a collaborative approach to research and innovation. Please see: IASC and Rights Lab Protocol
