Supporting older carers

New publications about older people caring for grandchildren.

  • Building blocks: Africa-wide briefing notes – supporting older carers
  • Forgotten families: Older people as carers of orphans and vulnerable children
  • These briefing notes are based on discussions at a HelpAge International and International HIV/AIDS Alliance workshop in Kenya on the situation of older carers of orphans and vulnerable children. They explain why programmes designed to support orphans and vulnerable children need to pay more attention to the needs of the older people who care for them.
