About Us

Child and Family Focus SA [CAFFSA] is an incorporated organisation under the Associations Incorporation Act 1985 and is the South Australian peak body representing the not-for-profit, non-government organisations [NGOs] providing child protection services for children, young people and families, especially in relation to various forms of Out of Home Care [including Foster Care and Residential Care], Family Support, Placement Prevention, Early Intervention and Family Reunification Services.


CAFFSA and its members have for many years been engaged as service providers and partners in the child protection sector, and we are acutely aware of sector complexities and challenges. Apart from being a difficult area of public policy, the impact of child protection incidents is challenging each one of us individually when we strive for what is best for families, children and young people.
