Vital Signs 2018 Launched! A must read report for anyone with an interest in the strengths and concerns of our community

The Acorn Foundation is excited to launch the 2018 Vital Signs Report, highlighting the various issues in the Western Bay of Plenty, as perceived by our community.  This Report forms the basis for Acorn's decision-making process at funding time.  Following extensive research undertaken by Key Research, the results show that, not surprisingly due to Tauranga's recent population explosion, planning for the region's growth tops the list of priorities for improvement, followed by issues around the cost of living, transportation and roading, drug and alcohol abuse, and caring for our environment. The full report can be viewed here, or contact us if you would like a copy mailed to you.
