The Grand Plan: Grandparent Films

Sep 25, 2018

Grandparents are out there, providing contributions of love, time and effort in families of every description. These are their stories.

Meet three amazing families. Each short film you see here profiles a family where grandparents are providing regular child care—to allow parents to work, attend classes, or play a more active role in the community. The circumstances are different from family to family. But the challenges they face, the gratitude they feel, and the support they’d find helpful are remarkably similar. Watch the videos below and browse our collection of resources for grandparents.
