GRG FB Poster 2022-163-152We need your help!

GRG supports 6,000+ full time grandparent and kin/whanau caregivers who are raising thousands of vulnerable and at-risk children throughout New Zealand.

These children have had a rough start in life through no fault of their own and would otherwise be placed in state care if it wasn't for their grandparents or others in their extended family stepping in to care for them full time.

GRG's work is about empowering positive connections between the caregivers and children, and the individuals and organisations that can help make a positive difference to their lives.

Please help them to have a positive future by supporting our work with their caregivers who protect and care for them.

Every dollar you donate ensures they get free access to our:
© 0800 GRANDS (0800 472 637) FREE helpline 
© Community Outreach and Specialist Advocates (on Benefits and Income Support) who work directly with the caregivers to ensure they get access to the help and advice they need either from GRG and   other community organisations and professionals  
© Monthly newsletter packed with helpful information, updates on policy, law and changes that affect them as caregivers 
© New member care packs with GRG Handbook and Parenting Toolbox DVDs and other vital information
© ‘Trauma-informed Caregiver training programmes and workshops 


Your generosity can and will make a real difference in the life of a child in need. Please help today.

What some of our members have to say...

Feedback from members on the difference our advocacy support and caregiver education programme (SALT) has made:

"The support provided was excellent, right at the time I needed to talk to someone and I knew that they understood what I was going through ” [GRG Member 2022]

"I have been able to provide my 4 Moko's with uniforms for school, healthy food, help to pay power, water. Give them a treat every now and then, take them out for the day. Less stress for my husband and myself.” “GRG are doing a fantastic job and I am very thankful and great full to them.” [GRG Member 2022]

"Support unbelievable touches my heart cause without use all we wouldn’t have a voice … Help we had at the meeting sensational your not alone there’s others to lift you up when you think your down … emotional feeling those meetings again are there to hear others and ask yourself question yes your truly not alone anymore… Thank you for all the love use all gave to GRG Raising there Grandkids … we wouldn’t survive without use because generous compassion love that you have for all of us thank you from me." [GRG Member 2022]

"They now have good lunches, clean uniforms and feel they are part of society. It has also taken the stress from me. I’ve gone from wondering if I should put them into care, to being able to get through the rough stuff.” [GRG Member 2021]

"The SALT training really gave me a better understanding of how these very damaged kids behaved and how to help them. It also gave me support from other people in the same position as myself – sometimes just knowing that you’re not alone can give you an extra boost to continue on this very challenging journey." [GRG Member 2021]

"Such a worthwhile programme with lots of useful strategies. I had four sessions with a child psychologist who was not able to give me anything like what I got from SALT.” [GRG Member 2021]

"[The Advocate] from GRG was knowledgeable and pretty much upskilled the WINZ lady which resulted in our getting the Unsupported Child Benefit.  Prior to that we had been turned away which also included not been allowed any food grants or anything. We were given no financial assistance from anyone for months. WINZ would not help us in anyway and told us to sell our house." [Survey respondent 2016]

"I have learnt a lot from GRG, if it wasn't for the support I've received I don't know where I'd be." [GRG Survey Respondent 2016]

"We have belonged to GRG for 8 years or so and the support we have had from the organisation has been tremendous with lots of advice and help."  [GRG Survey Respondent 2009]
