Program Description

The “Time For Grandparents” Program provides grandparents as parents with respite care and the chance for temporary childcare.

Grandchildren camps are available to provide children with entertaining activities. Grandparents may also attend if they wish for combined grandparent and grandchildren camps.

Grandfamily camps provide safe and enjoyable recreational activities for grandchildren. Grandparents can relax or participate in information sessions on legal or financial information related to grandparent carers or participate inĀ  counseling sessions provided by social workers .

Grandfamily camps also give grandparents the chance to meet other grandparents as parents to share their experiences.

Grandparents Information is a Queensland organization which provides information and referrals to grandparents to those who are taking care of their grandchildren either temporarily or permanently.
