Raising grandchildren and relatives

If you are raising a grandchild or another relative's child, support is available if you need help.

The Grannies Group is a network of Aboriginal grandparents who advocate on behalf of issues affecting their children, grandchildren and their community.

A support group for grandparents and carers in the northern metro region is provided by the Northern Carers Grannies Group.

A range of services for grandparents concerned about the welfare of their grandchildren is provided by Grandparents for Grandchildren.
