On the back of news coverage around the rights of grandparents who play a pivotal role in their families, it is interesting to see the contributions made by different generations and how roles are adapting in response to changes in family dynamics.
With everyone adjusting to budget cuts and reforms, Grey Pride wanted to know if this meant changes to your family by running a poll asking “As a grandparent what do you see as your primary role?”
It is not surprising to see that ‘support’ received the highest number of votes, with news coverage on the reliance of families on the financial support and involvement of grandparents growing. See these articles around multi-generational households and grandparents helping families financially for more information.

Is the role you take now different to that of your grandparents? Why not share your experiences in the forum.
Keep your eyes peeled for our next poll starting soon!
