We have 20 families which includes 41 children and we have 8 volunteers who are rostered. We provide morning tea for our grandparents each week and they can relax and stress out if they choose in an understanding environment. We arrange guest speakers and also outings for them and the children, this allows for interaction and removes some of their feelings of isolation. These grandparents have suffered a lot as they often feel a failure as parents and yet have to keep their emotions in check so as to bring up their children's children in a loving and stable home.
