Services & Support

Specialised services and immediate support assisting grandparent carers everyday.

GRGWA has been supporting grandparent carers and those in their care since they began two decades ago.

OUR WORK

Immediate Support

These are supports which are available to assist grandparent carers in their everyday lives.

Op Shop

Furniture, clothing, toys and books are donated for members to access at the OpShop.

A network of generous and thoughtful locals donate various items. Originally, President Jan Standen would store these at her own house and distribute them at each meeting. At the Op Shop, now located in their Warwick Space, members can access donations and all proceeds go towards GRGWA’s work.

Oz Harvest

Access to a weekly hearty meal, a box of groceries and an opportunity to socialise.

Every Friday, GRGWA members can come to the Warwick Space and access a box of food delivered by OzHarvest. GRGWA volunteer and member Maria, often provides a home cooked meal for the families who are picking up boxes – and invites them to stay for a chat and mingle with one another.

Resources

We provide immediate access to resources and information for grandparent carers.

Many of our members have first hand experience of how difficult it was to navigate systems and find information when they became grandparent carers. We have a collective experience and pass on our own learnings to every grandparent carer that walks through our door. We are also linked into support services who can provide further information that is family specific.

Safe Play Space

Our space provides a safe place for grandparent carers to bring their grandchildren to play on our equipment while they have a cup of tea.

Our centre was previously a childcare centre and is equiped with a fenced playground and indoor areas for grandchildren to play and socialise.

OUR WORK

Specialised services

These are services which are targeted at providing access to particular areas of need for grandparent carers.
