Funded by the Basic Skills Agency, Grandparents Plus produced good practice cards aimed at grandparents to assist them to support their grandchildren with literacy and numeracy. There is also a leaflet for schools and a report of the project.
The Grandparents Plus response to Care Matters 2007 is available to download. Grandparents Plus also contributed to the Kinship Care Alliance response, coordinated by Family Rights Group.
Forgotten Families, a joint report by Grandparents Plus and Adfam is based on a literature review and consultation with grandparents raising grandchildren as a result of drug and alcohol abuse in the family. Often isolated and stigmatised many of these grandparents face stress and financial hardship. The report highlights the specific difficulties grandparents in this situation encounter particularly when trying to find appropriate help and support.
