New Zealander of the Year Awards

In 2013 Grandparents Raising Grandchildren won the Mitre10 Community of the Year Award at the prestigious New Zealander of the Year Awards.
The award recognises the achievements of New Zealanders making exceptional contributions to their communities. The ‘Community of the Year Award’ category acknowledges groups working together up and down the country to build stronger communities.
We were thrilled to win this award as it is a fantastic tribute to the commitment, dedication and sacrifice our members make in raising their beloved grandchildren.  Click here for for more >>
