Grandparents as Parents

The ministry arose in response to a real need understood in our community. The rising cost of living and other pressures  has forced many parents into circumstances where Grandparents are often left with a significant caring role in the raising of children, and often find themselves 'in loco parentis'.  Whilst they might be the experts in terms of experience, this has also put a lot of pressure on Grandparents.

In conjunction with the Samaritans

this is a support group for Grandparents as Parents. There are no fees, no obligations, and confidentiality is assured.

Each Monday in School Terms
It now meets at St Alban's Charlestown
