Grandparents Day is an opportunity for Queenslanders to say ‘thank you’ to grandparents for their care and support and for sharing their knowledge, experience and traditions with younger generations.

A child’s interactions with their grandparent are often their first interactions with an older person. High-quality relationships between grandparents and young people help to create and foster positive attitudes toward ageing and older people and combat ageism.

Promotional resources to help you spread the word to your networks and celebrate Grandparents Day are now available.

Celebrate in person or virtually by:

  • downloading and sending a free e-card
  • cooking or sharing a favourite meal
  • reading a book or playing a game
  • talking about your family history.

Grandparents can also be primary full-time carers for their grandchildren — safeguarding family connections. More information about support available for grandparent carers can be found here at qld.gov.au/seniors/grandparenting
