SALT Workshop

Our Research studies published in 2005 and 2009 revealed that taking on the care of the children typically causes significant stress, economically and financially along with social isolation. 

One of the key recommendations arising from these studies is the importance of ongoing education, sharing and learning workshops for caregivers. 

We have developed the ‘SALT’ (Sharing and Learning Together) one-day workshop programme which is a free training programme open to all of our members.

These programmes are uniquely designed for grandparent and whanau caregivers, because they recognize the particular family dynamics experienced in these sorts of family breakdowns, the stage of life for the caregivers, generational differences between the grandparent whanau caregivers and the children. Recognizing these differences enables the participants to share with others who face a similar circumstance, helping them to forge bonds of friendship and support with other participants,
The positive experiences shared at the SALT workshops help caregivers to regain perspective in their own lives, boost their confidence and provide them with additional tools to effectively manage their health, wealth and well-being as well as that of their grandchildren.
