West Yorkshire Anti-Slavery Partnership

WYASP logo

The West Yorkshire Anti-Slavery Partnership (WYASP) is the strategic meeting framework for frontline organisations in West Yorkshire who may encounter incidents or matters involving modern slavery or human trafficking and exploitation. 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 partnership is delivered by West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Chaired by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime Alison Lowe.
