Hi I'm Jo, I am originally from the UK and have been living in New Zealand for the last 15 years. As a single Mum and with none of my family based in New Zealand, I was starting to feel very isolated and in need of further support.
Although my parents are still alive, being on the other side of the world does not really enable a relationship that I craved for both myself and my two young children. So Surrogate Grandparents was born...
Surrogate Grandparents New Zealand Charitable Trust brings together families and "Surrogate Grandparents" to those who feel they may benefit from such a union.
Perhaps you have moved to New Zealand to be with your partner and left your family behind in another part of the country or world, or perhaps your parents are no longer alive? Maybe your children have decided not to have their own children, or are living a distance away and you have loads of love to give?
Whatever your circumstances, Surrogate Grandparents are here to help you bridge that gap, by providing support, friendship & fun through the uniting of strong family partnerships.
