GRG Empowering Grandparents 2014

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren’s biennial two-day training Summits provide a unique opportunity to come together in a powerful learning environment in which topical issues such as the needs of vulnerable children and their grandparent and kin caregivers, child and adolescent development, positive strategies for parenting children affected by neglect and abuse, parenting teens, dealing with the impact of alcohol, drugs and social media as well as legal and financial issues and much more are addressed.
 
These events are aimed at bringing together grandparent and whanau caregivers, support coordinators and field officers with experts in child psychology and welfare, and representatives of government and NGOs who are all involved at the coal-face of child welfare; setting policy, legislative changes and working with vulnerable children and their families. 
 
Feedback from these events highlight the benefits to grandparent and whanau caregivers and the difference it makes to their lives.
 

“Fabulous quality and variety of speakers – all the information/topics were inter-related and totally relevant.” 

“Great that the speakers were prepared to listen to our feedback.  Very empowering for us GRG.  Great to feel that we are not alone, together we can have a voice and be heard by people in a position to make policy changes.”

“Absolutely fantastic conference, so much information, lots of fun and really gave me a lot of hope and encouragement.” 

“The information that was shared was beneficial to allow grandparents to discuss issues and to be encouraged to seek assistance with issues.”
