"Helping to allveiate isolation and loneliness linked to family breakdown."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Our Grandparents Support Group was formed in 2005/2006.


As Trustees, Carol Winskill & I (Christina Ord Taylor) felt the pain of loss of a Grandchild or Grandchildren to be a Living Bereavement, and that because of Divorce, Separations, or other Family situations there would be other Grandparents going through the same emotional roller coaster we have experienced.
