The 6 Rs - A Roadmap for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

Taking on the full time care of grandchildren or whanau is, for over 90% of the families we work with, the result of a traumatic event or family breakdown which is life changing for the children and their caregivers.  It requires a deep understanding of their needs as they work to reform their family.  

There are three key areas of need which involve:

           grg koro for bullets-406-725    Updating - raising children in today's environment is very different to their first time experience as a parent
           grg koro for bullets-406-725    Restoring - overcoming trauma and moving on so that you can be a healthy, functioning family

Our approach is to integrate the services that are needed at each stage of their caregiver journey.  Our GRG Roadmap below is informed by one of our Guiding Principles – Empowerment. Developed through our years of experience supporting and guiding grandparent caregivers our Roadmap clearly maps out the transition stages, the challenges and the support we make available.

Click on each of the 6R's below to learn more about how we can support you on your caregiver journey.  This is a journey for us too and as we walk alongside you we also learn and will continue to add to our resources for you to access along the way.
