Hey there.

Firstly, well done on the initiative and we hope you don’t get shut down.

We have been dealing with CYFS in the last two years and I am sooooo unimpressed with how they deal with things. Underfunded? Hiring wrong staff? Don’t know, I just found the staff to be completely incompetent (Manukau CYFS), unprofessional, and completely disorganised. We were given temporary care of our nephews and granted a type of foster/guardianship/whangai.

A year later the father took back the kids. Why? The cyfs worker didn’t file the paperwork. Well done – hope she’s feeling happy that the case is now closed and not her problem anymore. We’re currently seeking further legal action. And then don’t get me started on a couple of unprofessional staff in Palmerston North. For example, a staff member that is a family member in our case was able to access OUR personal file (all personal info like our income etc). I laid several complaints, nothing was done.

Feel free to post this email or the last section.

Keep up the work. My husband and I support your venture.
