Grandparents, grandchildren and family Law
The Grandparents, Grandchildren and Family Law project encourages grandparents to be confident and informed and to contribute positively to the care, welfare and development of their grandchildren, whether or not the parents of the children are separated or divorced.
Focus groups and community information sessions were conducted with Melbourne's Greek Community. A Reference Group was established with industry experts (eg Victoria Legal Aid, CO-ASIT - Italian Agency, private practitioners, Aged Care Services - Moreland Council). The Reference Group informed the development of fact sheets (in English and Greek) in relation to grandparents, grandchildren and Family Law.
A final report will be produced with recommendations for other CALD Communities.
A Project Worker with legal and information delivery expertise was employed.
The project's six facts sheets help older people understand their options and encourage them to act early when faced with family conflict. The six fact sheets are in Greek and English. They include information about Family Law, family dispute resolution, family violence, child protection and financial support for grandparents. They also provide a referral guide to free support services and legal advice.
