Becoming Child Wise Accredited: AIFS Au Pair
AIFS Au Pair is the only Child Wise accredited Au Pair agency in Australia.
AIFS Australia is part of a global network with offices in 10 global locations and has program offerings in 29 countries worldwide. Their network of 700 staff worldwide, deliver cultural exchange opportunities to more than 55,000 young people every year.
In 2014, AIFS engaged Child Wise to support the organisation in establishing a Child Protection Policy and Reporting Framework, and Recruitment and Selection policies and procedures. AIFS demonstrated an ongoing commitment to child safeguarding across their organisation, continuously promoting outstanding practice in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
Since then, AIFS has worked closely with Child Wise in embedding a child safe culture and applying a child safety lens across their programs and services, including helping their international partners meet Australian standards and best practice. AIFS has always strived to be an inclusive organisation and values equity and diversity among its staff, families and au pairs. AIFS became a Child Wise Accredited organisation in 2015.
We are proud to be an accredited Child Wise Partner. Working together with Child Wise has ensured that child protection and safeguarding continues as a core function of every aspect of our business.
