Grandparents Plus in later life




  • Are you a ‘long distance’ grandparent, trying to keep in contact with the youngest generation?

  • Are you a ‘hands on’ grandparent, looking after the pre-school children while their parents are at work?

  • Do you want to know about grandparent support groups?

  • Or latest research on extended families?

  • Or good books to enjoy with your grandchildren?

If so, you will be interested in a new organisation Grandparents Plus, a charity that hopes to influence public policy and achieve fuller recognition of the value of grandparents and their contribution to family welfare 

Grandparents Plus is developing a telephone helpline, local groups,  consultation with professionals, and wants to hear from existing networks and anyone with a special interest or expertise in the role of grandparents.
