The Walk Free Foundation works to provide an integrated strategy to end modern slavery. We believe that a strong multi-faceted approach through a combination of direct implementation, grassroots community engagement and working in partnership with faiths, businesses, academics, NGOs and governments around the world, is needed to end modern slavery. This includes building a robust knowledge base to inform action, driving legislative change in key countries and harnessing the power of businesses and faiths.
The foundation was launched by Andrew and Nicola Forrest in 2012 and seed funded by their Minderoo Foundation. It provides the information and capabilities required for countries to defeat slavery in their jurisdictions.
