Regular monthly group. There are many reasons why grandparents might be raising their grandchildren: a relationship breakdown between the child’s parents, illness, addiction, violence, bereavement etc. Whatever the reason, it is estimated that around 200,000 grandparents in the UK are providing full-time care for their grandchildren. The Grandparents Group provides a forum for grandparents and other kinship carers to gain mutual support, discuss common issues and access information, whilst children are cared for in a safe, encouraging environment.
