Time to Change

AIA Time to Change LogoAs a signatory to Time to Change, AIA has agreed to an Employer Action Plan that puts best-practice interventions and policies in place to help staff work in ways that promote positive mental wellbeing.
The Time to Change Pledge is a commitment to changing the way we all think and act about mental health in the workplace and operates to end mental health discrimination.

AIA will be implementing an approach that combines additional resources, information and guidance with training to help tackle mental health stigma, as well as introducing initiatives that support mental health and wellbeing.

Tackling Charity Fraud

We pledge to tackle fraud

Fraud is an ever-evolving and increasing criminal threat to society. No organisation – charitable or otherwise – can make itself completely immune to fraud but it can take steps to minimise the risks. Association of International Accountants (AIA) is committed to doing precisely that, which is why we have signed the Fraud Pledge.

By taking the pledge we are showing that we work actively to prevent fraud, wherever it might occur in our organisation.


Each year AIA staff choose an employee nominated charity to help raise money for. Previous nominations have included: The British Heart Foundation, Newcastle Food Bank, Great North Air Ambulance, Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, Cancer Research, Water Aid and Bliss.
