Following the major success of our previous runs, come and join in the fun and help raise money for GRG
Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Trust NZ provides support services and caregiver Education programmes to over 5,200 grandparent and whanau care families nationwide, representing over 8,500 caregivers and over 12,000 children in circumstances where they cannot be raised by their parents, and the only alternative is foster care.
In over 90% of these families, the grandmother is the primary caregiver and around a third of them are sole parenting, struggling on an annual household income of less than $30,000.
GRG’s vision and objectives are to empower grandparent care families with the vital support, information, advice, advocacy, and education they need to help them and the children and young people to achieve positive outcomes in their lives.
With Zonta’s Support: GRG’s Simply Acquired & Learned Techniques™ for Grandparents (SALT) education programme provides practical insights and understanding of the impact of past trauma on children, who may also have troubling and challenging behaviour.
The programme teaches them effective parenting strategies that promote healing and a sense of stability and security, so that these children and young people may have the best chance of achieving positive outcomes in their lives.Around NZ/World
