Grandparents Plus and the Equality and Human Rights Commission have been exploring the connection between older people’s poverty and child poverty around grandparental care. We have found that grandparents are risking hardship themselves in order to provide care and support for their families. The final report focuses on families who are particularly at risk of poverty; single parent families, families with disabled children and/or disabled parents, black and minority ethnic families, and those where grandparents are raising their grandchildren. The report and executive summary can be downloaded below together with a copy of Grandparents Plus’ policy response.
