Local Support

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren NZ is a community of people walking the same path, experiencing the same sorrow, joy and challenges that the role as grandparent and whanau caregiver brings and our Local Support Coordinators are a key part of our integrated approach to supporting over 6000 grandparent and whanau/kin caregivers nationwide.

Our dedicated and committed Local Support Coordinators are all volunteers who are themselves raising their grandchildren.  In their communities they host regular meetings providing members with greater fellowship, learning, support, access to timely and useful information and advice and ultimately the realisation that you are not alone and isolated on your path.

If anyone is interested in starting an informal coffee group, please email the Trust Office.
