Abstract:

Funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Grandparents Plus has been working in partnership with the Beth Johnson Foundation and with the Institute of Gerontology at Kings College London to explore grandparenting in Europe.

The report shows that over 40% of grandparents in 12 European countries studied provide child care. This major new research shows a direct relationship between grandparents caring and the availability of affordable formal childcare and support for parents.

It points to an emerging childcare crisis as the very grandmothers who are providing care are being expected by governments to stay in work longer.
