Grandparents Who Parent - Support group

Having full-time care of your grandchildren can be very rewarding but also challenging. Grandparents might sometimes feel physically and emotionally drained by their caring role. The demands of being a parent for the second time, can impact in multiple ways – your ability to work and earn an income; your ability to maintain peer friendships; dealing with grief and loss (yours and the children’s) are all factors that can impact on your wellbeing.

Parenting grandchildren can be a stressful, challenging and lonely experience. This 4-week group program provides support and information for grandparents.

  • Learn more about parenting grandchildren
  • Form friendships
  • Gather and share useful resources
  • Learn more about and be encouraged to use self-care

This group requires commitment to attend all sessions. Places are strictly limited.
