The Modern Slavery Fund is the Home Office’s £33.5m official development assistance (ODA) fund to support the UK’s goal of reducing the prevalence of modern slavery in countries from which the UK sees a high number of victims. This activity started in 2016/17 and will end in 2020/21. The fund actively contributes to achieving the UN sustainable development goal target 8.7 which calls for “immediate and effective measures to eradicate modern slavery” by 2030. The fund forms part of a UK government commitment to spend £200m of ODA on tackling modern slavery. As part of the Home Office Modern Slavery Fund we are investing £3m in Vietnam, £5m in Nigeria and £2m in Albania. The Modern Slavery Fund also includes an £11m Innovation Fund, which builds the evidence base by supporting projects taking innovative approaches to tackling modern slavery.
