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.
