Member Support

GRG Member Services are available nationwide.

Our member support service includes, information, support, advice, outreach and advocacy via our 0800 GRANDS helpline nationally, as well as face to face meetings, counselling and support at family group conferences, family meetings and court appearances where possible.  Further support is provided by our volunteer-led Support Groups held throughout New Zealand from Kaitaia in the North to Invercargill in the South.

You must be a member of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust NZ to utilise our Outreach and Advocacy services as this is a referral service. 

Member Support - 0800 GRANDS - 0800 472 637

or for Auckland callers 09 418 3753

Our 0800 GRANDS helpline only enables us to accept calls from a landline. We know that many of our member caregivers no longer have a landline and the mobile phone costs of calling us on our landline is cost prohibitive for many.
To ensure you can get the help you need from our Member Support, Outreach and Advocacy Service, we have a text service.

Text for Support 

TEXT your name to 027 398 0388

We will call you back. If your number is private please include that information in your text that too.

8 am to 2 pm (Monday to Friday)
