Between 28 September and 2 October, we encouraged grandparents and grandchildren to get together to celebrate Grandparents' Day (1 October).

You made it a social occasion by sharing your pictures with us on your favourite social media channels, using the hashtag #Grandpics.

You can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Your #Grandpics

Please help us be there

Your gift can help older people get the support they need.

What's Grandparents' Day?

Grandparents’ Day aims to encourage the public to celebrate grandparents across the UK. By connecting people to their grandparents, it’s also an opportunity for us to highlight the real needs of older people – because it’s people like their grandma or grandpa that are affected by loneliness, the care crisis and many other issues faced by older people.
