Australian Institute of Family Studies
We are the Australian Government's key research body in the area of family wellbeing. We conduct research to increase the understanding of Australian families and the issues that affect them.
Occasionally, members of the public report to us that they have been contacted by scammers pretending to be from the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
AIFS conducts telephone interviews for research projects from time to time, but calls are not made ‘out of the blue’.
If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from AIFS, ask them their name and their research project. Then tell them that you would like to check their identity and call us on 1800 352 275 (9am–5pm, Mon–Fri).
Young people say the family law system is not listening to them or responding adequately to their needs.
