During recent years it has become apparent that there are many Australian families where the care of children is the responsibility of one or more grandparents. Grandchildren come to live with their grandparents for a variety of reasons, including neglect, abuse, domestic violence, death, mental health, physical disability, and parental drug and alcohol abuse.
Grandparents that undertake the primary care responsibility for their grandchildren make a positive difference to the children’s lives by providing a safe, stable and caring family environment. They are special people that face a range of issues associated with their decision to provide care for their grandchildren. These include social, emotional and health issues, many of which are increased by the age, health and financial circumstances of the grandparents, as well as the impact of the children’s experiences prior to coming into the care of their grandparents.
