About our new look

In 2018, we rolled out our new branding as “my AFK”, complete with a new logo, website and visual identity.

After consulting with lots of the families that we work with, we decided to drop the word “kids” from our brand. Although we do still support children, we felt that “kids” didn’t fit when talking about our work more broadly, especially the older students and trainees in our education and employment programmes.

 

We also wanted to recognise our supporters’ loyalty to Action For Kids over the past 25 years, which is why we’re keeping the “AFK”. You are a vital part of our community: we want the new brand to reflect a sense of belonging amongst our supporters, staff and volunteers.
