Circle of Friends Australia (COFA) is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children and vulnerable people. COFA has zero tolerance for the abuse of children and vulnerable people.

All people involved with COFA or any of the affiliated Circles who in their volunteering are involved with children and vulnerable people are responsible for reporting information about the abuse of those people. All COFA members who expect to have direct contact with refugees and asylum seekers as part of their role for their circle are required to obtain a SA Department of Human Services Working with Children Check, and a Vulnerable Person-related Employment Check.
