9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.


We are a non-profit charitable trust established to support grandparents/kin who are raising grandchildren/whanau children in New Zealand.

We aim to provide educational and support services that protect, preserve and promote the wellbeing and stability of children and their grandparents/kin carers in circumstances where they cannot be raised by their parent/s.

In some communities, GRG Support Groups host regular meetings providing members with greater fellowship, learning, workshops, information and advice. Some Local GRG Support Coordinators provide telephone and/or direct support to members.
