Linda’s Story

Linda and her Husband’s life changed dramatically when they become the primary carers of their grandson.

“My husband and I were both working full time, taking long holidays and really enjoying life. Then the unexpected happened – we became the legal guardians of our two year old grandson Blair”

“When we first took custody of him we still had money coming in. When we retired things got very tough for us and I knew I’d have no choice but to reach out for help. At the time I felt like I was the only one going through it. We have since met many others out there that are in the same boat as us. Talking to others helped a lot.”

“The food has been a huge help, because in the weeks when you haven’t got that extra bit of money, you know you can still get enough food to get you by until the next fortnight.”

At the time I felt like I was the only one going through it.
