New group could help Otley grandparents
10:00am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in News
A new support group for grandparents could be set up in Otley.
The Leeds (& Yorkshire) Grandparents Association is exploring the move after identifying a large number of grandparents in the area who have significant childcare commitments.
The charity aims to offer practical support to grandparents and grandchildren and is working in collaboration with Otley Children Centre.
Manager Dave Cousins is inviting grandparents and their families to visit the Otley Core Resource Centre on Friday, October 11, to find out more.
He said: “We have found a large number of grandparents in and around the Otley area who are either raising their grandchildren full time or look after young grandchildren as child minders.”
