Since 2011, Wanslea has been engaged in research to better understand the impact of the caring role on grandparents who are raising their grandchildren full-time. The project aims to inform advocacy, policy, and service development for grandparent carers. Lotterywest has provided funding for this important work, conducted in partnership with Edith Cowan University, Curtin University, and Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren WA Inc.

The research has culminated in a “Fairer Future for Grandchildren” campaign, with a call to action to Federal and State governments to better recognise and support grandparent carers in order to keep their grandchildren safe and secure in their care. The calls to action are available here. A public report and a series of educational videos have been released.

If you would like to support a “Fairer Future for Grandchildren” in the lead-up to the state election, please consider writing to your local candidates. Please ensure you let the recipient know you live in their Electorate. You might also like to consider writing a letter to the Premier and the Minister for Child Protection and Women’s Interests. You can access a letter-writing pack with all the necessary information, including a draft letter here.
