AFI 2020 Update

7th January 2020

The year ahead

We are planning an event to attract new members to the AFI – showcasing the benefits of joining and how we can work to make our industry stronger. The event will take place at Wyboston Lakes, MK44 3AL on Wednesday 26th February 2020. If all AFI members encourage any non members you know to attend we can further increase our numbers and the work we do for you.

The full AFI board and administration team will be also be there to answer questions and discuss joining.

New CHAS portal

Is your CHAS accreditation due to expire? Will you be using the Common Assessment Standard?

While we make the finishing touches to the new AFI website, the new CHAS portal has now launched. This means members can access reduced rates for all CHAS accreditation including the new Common Assessment Standard. The new portal makes the renewal process much easier than before – you simply upload all documents directly on to the CHAS portal and the assessor will access them directly. We are pleased to confirm Nigel Levi will still be the assessor but we won’t send documents directly to him.

If you need to renew now get in touch and we will guide you through the new system.


Our next newsletter will be issued in February giving you much more information and updates. Don’t forget all members can submit news articles or case studies. Send them through to us.
