Grandparent Carers and Substance misuse - help requested !

Hi,

We have been discussing with Lincolnshire County Council Young Carers Service about children with parents who have substance misuse. We have been thinking about how the grandparents may be a way of identifying young carers as they may be providing the support the parent is not able to.

Any thoughts, contacts and ideas welcome.

Thanks

Vicky

Hi Vicky, It might be a little stereotypical to assume but would engaging with local community groups that elderly people may attend be a good starting point? Such as quilting groups, alotment groups, mens sheds, model and craft groups or communites etc or even faith groups.
