Within this project grandparents with a range of circumstances participated in consultations and focus groups, including full time carers of grandchildren, part time or informal carers, those currently fighting for access to grandchildren, former carers whose grandchildren have returned to their parents’ care, widowed grandparent carers, divorced grandparents, and couples.

2. Relationship support
3. Health and quality of life
• What grandparents want and need from support services
• Overcoming the obstacles: making your service accessible
