Grandparents and Relatives Raising Children

The Grandparents and Relatives Raising Children program provides information, advice and referral options to Grandparents and other relatives who have recently taken up the role of primary carers of their Grandchildren or related children.

The program can visit you in your home providing information and support. We may also provide some funding to help carers with the cost of obtaining necessary items for the children. The service also assists with navigating and linking to services.

People can access this program via Strong Families Safe Kids Advice and Referral Line on 1800 000 123
