The Department of Communities has produced this guide to help Western Australian grandfamilies and to assist those who provide support and information to grandfamilies.

The booklet begins with what grandparents might want to know when they start caring full-time for their grandchildren. The sections that follow cover a range of practical matters like financial assistance, accommodation and childcare and then shift to parenting and children’s wellbeing and then, lastly, problems for young people such as substance abuse.
