The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE UK is lag­ging be­hind other Euro­pean coun­tries by fail­ing to recog­nise the im­por­tant role that grand­par­ents play in look­ing af­ter chil­dren, a re­port claimed to­day. One in three moth­ers in the UK rely on grand­par­ents to pro­vide child­care, but un­like in many Euro­pean coun­tries, the state does lit­tle to recog­nise this, ac­cord­ing to a study by char­ity Grand­par­ents Plus, the Beth John­son Foun­da­tion and the In­sti­tute of Geron­tol­ogy at Kings Col­lege London.
