As the landscape for family life changes, it is important that the regulatory and legal environment responds and remains relevant to their changing needs. We endeavour to keep abreast of best practice and we are committed to continuing our research into grandparent and whanau caring and the influence it has on our children.

GRG has commissioned three major research reports:
