    Why this is called the ‘State of Care’ report. Care has many meanings. Children in the formal custody of the State are “in care.” This report is partly about the state of the care and services they receive. Care also has a more general meaning: to protect someone and provide for their needs. This report is also about how well the State cares for all vulnerable children in this more general sense. CYF plays a lead role in delivering both of these functions.

    We’ve had four new funds set up with ACF.  The Youthfund is a youth led fund to support and promote youth leadership and initiatives. A new giving group, the Better Beginnings Collective Fund is underway (more from them in the future). Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund has come under ACF’s wing, which is really exciting and will be a long term role in enabling the continuance of Auckland Zoo’s internationally regarded Conservation work. Finally the Rua & Clarrie Stevens Charitable Trust is now part of ACF, with well-known philanthropists Lee & Penny Stevens continuing the 45 years history of family philanthropy with ACF’s support. Click here to read more.
