Grandparents and Grandchildren Society (GAGS) is a support group for Grandparents who are raising their Grandchildren. GAGS aim to help alleviate the feelings of loneliness and isolation from one's peer group. This is achieved through promoting regular social interaction via regular meetings, functions and general get-togethers where people can share information. Monthly Barbeques and a clothing pool are also available. A database of phone contacts and a regular newsletter are available. GAGS also acts as a lobby group for grandparenting matters.
GAGS offers telephone support and access to Group Leaders in times of crisis. GAGS are also able to link or refer you to appropriate people or resources who are best suited to provide the right help, advice or assistance.
