Grandparents Plus is the national charity (England and Wales) which champions the vital role of 14 million grandparents and the wider family in children’s lives – especially when they take on the caring role in difficult family circumstances.
Grandparent Plus provides:
- Evidence policy solutions and campaigns so that the contribution which the wider family make to children’s well-being is better recognised, valued and supported.
- An advice and information service for relatives and friends who are raising a child because their parents cannot. The advice line number is 0300 123 7015 and is open Monday to Friday 10am to 3pm.
- A free Support Network for the wider family raising children to reduce isolation and promote peer-to-peer support.
- Training and guidance to professionals working with kinship carers.
