We work with you
Established in 2002, Grandparents For Grandchildren is a not-for-profit organisation staffed by a team of experienced volunteers. GFGSA believes that all children have the right to feel safe and secure. We provide a unique support service to Grandparent and Kinship Carers who have taken on this responsibility.
- GFGSA began as a small group of concerned Grandparents meeting in a lounge room to find ways to help their at-risk Grandchildren
- Word spread, Governments began to listen and GFGSA was offered a small, shared office space in the Torrens Building on Victoria Square
- The group of grandparents had become frustrated by having the responsibility of being primary carers of their grandchildren but were unable legally to make decisions on their behalf, primarily in regard to education and health issues
- With the support of Government, GFGSA developed the Informal Relative Caregiver’s Statutory Declaration which addresses this inequity and similar instruments are now being used in other Australian states
Is of a community in which all children and young people are cared for and kept safe in a nurturing, family environment and that the role of grandparents and kinship carers is recognised, supported and valued.
To empower grandparents and kinship carers to access and care for their grandchildren by providing them with reliable information and support.
Our most recent constitution was approved by the board in January 2021.
