2016 Research Report

Cover page kb2-693“The empty nest is refilled: the joys and tribulations of raising grandchildren in Aotearoa”
 

by Dr Liz Gordon of Pukeko Research Ltd, this is the 'first cut' report commissioned by Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust NZ from the qualitative and quantitative data collected during the 2016 Grandparent and Whanau Carer Survey carried out in March to May 2016.

It reveals the significant social and economic challenges faced by over 1100 grandparent and whanau carers. It includes data specifically collected on 1324 of the over 1700 vulnerable children they are raising because their parents are unable or unfit to parent them.  


In the coming months, a series of further topic specific in-depth reports are also planned. This report follows the largest and most extensive study of its type in New Zealand to date and was funded by a Lotteries Community Sector Research Fund grant.

For further enquiries please contact Kate Bundle.
