Celebrating NSW Grandparents This October

NSW Grandparents Day is around the corner, providing a great opportunity to show nan or pop how much they mean to families and communities across NSW.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke is encouraging families to celebrate Grandparents Day on 30 October.

“Grandparents are the backbone of our families, supporting parents, teaching values, and connecting to family history,” Ms Cooke said.

“We should ensure we are celebrating Grandparents every day of the year, but Grandparents Day is a particularly great time to acknowledge their past, present and future contributions.”

Grandparents Day is a chance to reflect on the special intergenerational bond between seniors and their grandchildren, and the special recipe for love that only they can offer.

“Grandparents play a vital role in family life, building special relationships across all age groups and cultures,” she said.

“Each person who takes on the role of a grandparent in their family or community is unique and special, so please remember to pick up the phone or go and visit your loved ones this Grandparents Day.”

Grandparents Day is part of the Ageing Well in NSW: Action Plan 2021-2022.
