Nearly half of Grandparent carers are looking after a child with a behavioural problem or a disability.
A new report by the Family Fund reveals that Grandparents raising disabled Grandchildren are facing enormous hardships, isolation, health problems and a lack of support. It’s crucial that there is greater recognition of the vital caring role they play.
The Grandparents Legal Centre’s Community Care Team can advise Grandparents in this situation about their rights and the responsibilities of local councils and health authorities. The team is experienced in bringing Judicial Reviews to hold authorities to account if they fail to comply with their duties.
