Grandparents Victoria (GPV) is a statewide non-profit organisation of grandparents working together to shape a positive future for all children
The needs of families are becoming more complex and the support grandparents can offer to their own family and to other families is significant. Through acting together grandparents are becoming strong advocates. They are the custodians of considerable wisdom, compassion and skills that are being put to good use in activities to support families and to benefit the wider community.
GPV aims to:
- Link grandparents across the state and the nation
- Identify, articulate and promote the needs of grandchildren and grandparents
- Represent the views of grandparents in public consultations and influence policy and practice affecting families
- Share ideas and information about what works well in supporting families.

Congrats to GPV and her Board on the 20th birthday! The years have gone by quickly and yet you have achieved so much. Who would have believed it when we first started chatting in Moonee Ponds?
It has been a remarkable journey. Wanting to support families has driven us to think and act much more widely than we could have conceived of in 2001. There have been some disappointments along the way, most particularly the lack of value governments place on supporting families, particularly vulnerable families.
