Are you a grandparent providing full-time care for your grandchildren? Are you concerned about custody or legal responsibilities?

The Department of Communities, in partnership with Wanslea and Midlas, is hosting a series of free sessions for grandcarers about legal matters relating to the care of their grandchildren.

The next session will be held on Monday 13 August at the Swan Districts Senior Citizens Association, 1 The Avenue, Midland.

Please RSVP by Monday 6 August by emailing carers@communities.wa.gov.au or call 6217 6888. Please also include any dietary or accessibility requirements in your response.

The session will enable you to identify issues you may need to consider, including whether or not you should seek a legal remedy such as applying for court orders.

Community organisations working with grandcarers are also invited to attend the sessions.
