Baptcare Gateway Supporting Grandparents and Carers

Baptcare Gateway Supporting Grandparents and other Relative Carers Service South West Region

Baptcare Gateway provides support to Grandparents (or other related carers) who are caring for their grandchildren or younger relatives.

This is a short term program that links carers with existing services within their community.

Services Include:
  • Initial financial support to assist with the children moving into their new home
  • Information and support to assist the grandparent or relative to navigate services available to the children, for example enrolling children into a new school or accessing parenting information
  • A chance to meet other grandparents in a group environment
  • Short term support to assist with new situations or major transitions or perhaps a crisis situation

Enquiries or referrals to our Family Services program can be made by families or individuals directly, or by professionals working with the family.
