Thank you for the Education and Development Fund

In 2023, Grandcarers SA was able to support 475 children through our Education and Sports Fund helping Grandcarers cover the cost of sports, laptop purchases, education and other activities for the children in their care.

Below are some responses we received as a result.

"I really just wanted to take the time to thank all of you so very much for your support in helping me with their Care... It's so very true that it takes a village to raise our children. With your support this year I have been able to get the children Devices for Learning . (Name withheld) has so needed special apps to help him gain muscle memory & help for learning disabilities.

Also, Swimming lessons...!!!.. I was so excited that I could actually apply for funding for them. Both the boys have asthma & swimming is the best way to build up their lungs."

"Thank you so very much for your help and support, this has helped my grand daughter immensely, she loves her swimming lessons and we are so grateful for BankSA Foundation helping all kinship and grandparent carers.

Thanks again, I so appreciate it and we feel so much better knowing we are doing all we can to keep her safe."

" Thank you so very much for your help and support, this has helped my grandaughter immensely, she loves her swimming lessons and we are so grateful for helping all kinship carers. I'm attaching a picture of Emily enjoying her lessons."

"I would like to express my appreciation to The Rali Foundation for the funding that grandparents can access to be able to provide activities for grandchildren in their care.

I could not afford to cover these costs as a single grandcarer. That you so very much for your support. It is gratefully appreciated."

"I cannot express enough thanks for the reimbursement of school uniforms for my gandchildren. They have both had a real positive start to 2023 and settled in really well.

If it wasn't for the funding support of businesses, through GFGSA, it would be more challenging for grandparent carers to make ends meet. It is really appreciated."

" I would just like to say thank you for helping myself and my granddaughter financially. You have made our lives alittle easier as I have been struggling.

Ava started school so to be able to spoil her with new shoes ect made the process so much better. We are so grateful "
