Family Support for Grandparents and Relatives Raising Children (FSGRRC) North West
FSGRRC supports grandparents and relative carers who have recently assumed the care of a related child under the age of 18 years.
FSGRRC provides outreach support for families to access initial financial and emotional support and links to existing services in the community. The program also offers group and information sessions on an ongoing basis. Grandparents and relative carers can also access group activities without being a current client of the program. FSGRRC covers the North West Coast supporting families for up to six months if necessary.
