Event Details

We'd love it if you could join us for the launch of our series of short films about grandparents

Relationships Scotland and Parenting Across Scotland have come together with filmmaker, Martin Smith, to produce a series of short films exploring the roles of grandparents across Central Scotland.

Through our work supporting family relationships, we recognise the importance of intergenerational kin relationships, and these films give a valuable insight into some of the challenges faced by grandparents who are denied contact with their grandchildren and of those in a kinship care role. In addition, we have looked at the benefits of ongoing grandparental involvement for all generations.

Grandparents often tell us that they do not feel fairly represented within society and by focusing on real families we hope to raise awareness of issues relating to grandparent's family relationships,  spark discussion about services available to support these relationships and provide a free reference for families and people working to support intergenerational relationships.

Following the screening of our films there will be an opportunity for attendees to talk to the filmmaker, producers and participants throughout lunch.
