About the Conference

• Grandparents and other caretakers (aunts and uncles, family friends, etc.)  supporting children is not a new concept, however, their role as the main caretaker continues to be on the rise and poses challenges for families. 

• The sacrifices grandparents and other caretakers make to care for children may call for adjustments and the need to seek resources to adapt to unique family dynamics. 

• The one-day conference will bring together grandparents, relative caretakers, non-profit and government service providers and community leaders to discuss the vital role of grandparents in supporting and nurturing children. 

• Workshops will be held on law and policy, education challenges, practice issues for service providers and resources for caretakers. 

Registration is FREE and lunch will be provided.
