Child Protection: Our Children, Our Community

At AIFS we are passionate about Child Protection and are proud to be accredited by Child Wise, Australia’s only Child Safe Certified Au Pair Agency. This week - September 3 - 9 is NAPCAN' s Child Protection week and to support them in their efforts AIFS will be running it's own Child Protection Week on the same dates.Through the events and fundraising we will do this week, we hope to build awareness among our families, au pairs and the broader community about the role we all play in keeping children safe.

Our key evetn will be an AIFS fundraiser for NAPCAN. If you wish to join us in supporting NAPCAN and their work they do to prevent Child Abuse and Neglect click here.

During this week we want to involve all AIFS families and Au Pairs in the role we all play in keeping children safe including our Competition - please see below. During this week we will be encouraging all families to actively engage in the area of Child Protection and learn more by visiting the websites of Child Wise and NAPCAN and reading the AIFS Child Protection Policy and Reporting Framework  which was developed in conjunction with Child Wise.
