Family for Every Child New Zealand was founded in 2017 and is a charitable trust registered in New Zealand to promote the care, protection and development of children and young people who are without family care or who are at risk of losing family care. The organisation was set up by Family for Every Child to support Family’s global work to enhance the care of children worldwide
Overall responsibility for high level strategy and the direction of Family New Zealand lies with our volunteer board, individuals thoughtfully elected based on their expertise in child protection, international development, and resource and relationship building.
This Board reports to the Board of the global alliance every six months who in turn reports to Family for Every Child’s Assembly of Members.
