A few months ago we mentioned our Director, Sandra Landau received her MBE at the end of April 2017.

Today we are proud to present an offical picture of Princess Anne presenting the award to her.

Sandra helped make the world a safer place for au pairs and has been working in the au pair industry since 1986 and has helped to find the international au pair association (IAPA) in 1994.

She also helped form the British au pair agencies association (BAPAA) and set up the European committee for au pair standards, which led to her honouring for “services to cultural exchange programmes”.

For years, the practice of au pairing was largely unregulated and Ms Landau’s work helped put safety standards in place for participants all over the world.

So it was a well deserved award and we are so proud of her and her achievement
