The Australian Au-Pair Families Association is the leading industry association and regulation body of self-matched Au Pair agreements in Australia.

The organisation was formed in 2012 in-officially by concerned au pair host families and has been associated on a not-for-profit basis in 2014 with the aim to protect and develop the au pair experience as a flexible and affordable solution for Australian families and to ensure that au pairs can choose their family with the certainty of fair conditions and agreements.

AAPFA believes that au pairs appreciate the experience in Australia and ensures that safe placements will be available for au pairs without the price tag from au pair agencies.
