In recognition of the importance of supporting families where children are being raised by their grandparents, Seniors Enquiry Line in partnership with the Queensland Government operates the “Time For Grandparents Program”.
This statewide service funded by the Department of Communities is designed to provide the children of these families with fun and interesting activities and give grandparents the opportunity to have some well earned time out. Alternatively, grandparents may also enjoy attending these activities with their children. Combined grandparent and grandchildren camps are also available.
Grandparents who are the primary carers of grandchildren and who are not receiving the fostering allowance and not approved relative/ kinship carers with the Department of Child Safety are eligible for the program.
For all bookings and enquiries please contact Seniors Enquiry Line 1300 135 500 from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. All enquires are welcome and confidential. If grandparents are unsure about their eligibility they are encouraged to contact Seniors Enquiry Line.
