Our parish hosts, supports and facilitates a Grandparents as Parents group, now known as Kinship Carers. The group provides, during school terms, a safe, confidential meeting place and facilitated sharing of experiences for kinship carers. These kinship carers are people, usually grandparents, who are raising grandchildren or children of extended families for a variety of reasons. Kinship carers are referred to the group by Newcastle Samaritans Organisation, which also provides further assistance to the carers and mentors the facilitators.
Our facilitators Janet Storer and Sue Thomas provide information and assistance, where needed, for members of the group. Meetings are held during school terms each Wednesday at 10am at St.Martin’s Kahibah.
