What we do - London
Last Updated on Tuesday, 30 April 2013 13:32
Whilst the Grandparents' Association has so much to offer we are often asked what regional help is available and what events, information and support there is. With this in mind we have set up some regional pages which will give you an insight into whats happening in your region and the groups that are run, local services which are running or under development, information available or help that is needed. If you would like some advice or help please feel free to contact us on 0845 4349585
What we do:
Currently our main activities are networking, volunteer recruitment,setting up support groups, training, and raising awareness of the role of grandparents and the Grandparents' Association across London. We also work with grandparents who are caring for grandchildren while their parent or parents are serving a custodial sentence. We regularly meet with a wide cross section of professionals and organisations with an interest in grandparenting issues. These include Social Services, Supported and Social Housing providers, Education services, community centres,intergenerational projects, parenting groups, family courts and ward councillors. Through the longstanding campaigning and networking of the Grandparents' Associations CEO Lynn Chesterman we have wide contacts and influence across both voluntary sector organisations and central government. There are regular meetings with government ministers and parliamentary groups to inform and advise on policy.
