Grandparents for Grandchildren in the news

Winner of our $100 000 high-impact grant in 2019, has gone from strength to strength in recent years, employing a new CEO, moving to new premises, and expanding its support services. Recently their great work was acknowledged when they received the prestigious Andamooka Community Project Award at the South Australian Volunteer Awards, for their Village Program, supporting grandparents and other kinship carers who are caring for their grandchildren.

The organisation has recently rebranded as “Grandcarers SA”, to acknowledge the many carers they support, who are not only grandparents.

It is wonderful to see many of our Impact100 SA members supporting Grandcarers SA, including the Crawford family, through the CMV Foundation, who have assisted with the purchase of a vehicle and other who are financially supporting the organisation, since finding out about the great work they do at our Grants night.
