SALT Workshop

Upcoming SALT Workshops - Free for members!

We are delighted to offer our SALT (Sharing and Learning Together) workshops specially designed for grandparent and kin/whanau caregivers with the aim of 'growing stronger grandparents, growing stronger grandchildren.'

These workshops are free to GRG members and will next be held in:

Gisborne on Tuesday 11 August 2015     9:30am to 2pm

Kaitaia on Tuesday 25 August 2015        9:30am to 2pm

About the Facilitators

Jill Worrall and Diana East both have many years experience as adult learning facilitators and trainers.  Their workshops are fun, very interactive and strengths-based, covering:
  • Identifying participants' internal and external strengths;
  • Examining the impact of caring and changes in relationships and lifestyles since taking on the caregiver role;
  • Identifying one impact or change that each participant would like to work on.
  • The concept of resilience and how that can be harnessed to improve the lives of grandparents and the children they care for. 

Feedback from previous participants shows that positive learning experiences such as SALT really bolsters resilience and helps grandparents to cope better in their roles.

Numbers at each workshop will be limited to a maximum of 18 participants so you will need to register your interest quickly!

Please do this by phoning Diana East on 0800 472 637 ext 6 or by email
