It's Grandparents' Day on Sunday 7 October, and to celebrate we're asking you to say cheese and show us your #Grandpics!

Why not snap a special selfie with your grandparents or grandchildren, or share one of your favourite photos of you together? Grandparents' Day is all about taking a moment to say thank you, so hop on social media and show the world what being a grandparent or grandchild means to you. Post your photo using the hashtag #Grandpics.

You can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Take a look at the #Grandpics gallery

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.

We're here to help

You can order printed copies of any of our guides and factsheets by calling our advice line on 0800 678 1602. Lines are open 8am-7pm, 365 days a year. We also offer support and specialist advice through the advice line and at over 130 local Age UKs.
