2016 Grandparents and Whanau Caregivers Survey

Message fromDi Vivian (2)-990 Di Vivian, Founder, GRG Trust NZ

Thank you to all the wonderful grandparent and whanau caregivers who took part in our 2016 Grandparent and Whanau Caregiver Survey.  The survey period is now at an end and our "first cut" report is now complete and will be followed by a series of further topic specific in-depth reports.  

Over 1000 caregivers had their say on the economic and social issues impacting on them between March and the end of May 2016.  

We are thrilled to have had such an incredible response from you all and to hear from over 10% of the grandparent caregiver population in New Zealand! 

What we learn from this important study will help us to promote positive changes and improvements to the support and services you rely on and need daily in you lives and we look forward to sharing the findings of this study with you in the coming months.  

The 'first cut' full report in PDF format titled "The empty nest is refilled: the joys and tribulations of raising grandchildren in Aotearoa" can be read here.
For any media interest in this study please contact Kate, our Communications Manager & Business Development Manager.

Thank you too for the support for this study from the Lotteries Grants Board, the Canterbury University Human Ethics Committee and Dr Liz Gordon and her team at Pukeko Research Limited.

To all of you who are full-time grandparent and whanau/kin caregivers, you are our heroes...thank you for letting your stories be told and your voices heard!
