I can't understand why Central Governement and County Councils do not recognise grandparents as offical carers. My parents have taken guardianship of my Nieces at great personal expence to themselves – my mum had to give up her job-only to be told that they are not entitled to the same finacial help that a foster parent would have got had my nieces gone into to care. I find this a disgrace.

Why is this idea important?

More and more working grandparents are having to take care of their grandchildren through drug or alcohol addiction and I think they should be treated fairly and recieve the same rights and benefits as other carers.
