"Felt so battered and stressed until I asked for help from GRG and in a very short time with that support from them life became so much better for this family. I know that without GRG I would still be feeling battered, intimidated and stressed. Amazing organisation and so wonderful that we have them to stand up for our rights when no one else will."

“E mihi ana tooku ngakau ki a koutou nga kaimahi o tenei roopu Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. Without your information and prior to your advice and support offered through web site, support group, advocacy and phone conversations it was extremely challenging to provide the quality of life my Grandchildren now experience. Thank you so very much.”
