Welcome to GlobalGrandparents

Sheena Ferguson

GGP-Global Ambassador

We have created GlobalGrandparents® out of our own experience of being dispersed around the world, and driven by a desire for grandparents and grandchildren to be a part of each other's everyday lives irrespective of geographical separation. Now based in Scotland, we have lived and worked for most of our lives overseas and have a 'family down under' including two young granddaughters. We first became 'GlobalGrandparents®' in 2007, and have since experienced the rollercoaster of emotions that is GlobalGrandparenting!

Our mission is to build a global community of like-minded people with families spread across the country and around the world, to share experiences and related content, and to support you build and preserve the unique bond between grandparents and grandchildren, wherever you may live. Indeed you don’t have to be ‘global’ to join us – our services apply to all grandparents and families wanting to be part of a like-minded community. We have our own ‘The GlobalGrandparent®’ Blog Page, and also our Facebook Page for sharing articles and experiences about the world of GlobalGrandparenting. Since we launched, it has been truly wonderful to hear from so many people who are in the same boat, so to speak – we are not alone! As our community grows, we will be rolling out a range of tailored services to support your family to keep in touch when apart, and to simplify travel to be together.

We are fortunate to live in a time where technology has transformed the way we communicate, and has become such an important part of being a global family. However, keeping in touch and being interactive across the miles in a safe, secure, and private way can still prove a challenge. Whilst multiple social media and ‘sharing’ options exist to communicate, we have created a private and secure platform to allow direct and interactive communication between grandparents and grandchildren in a safe, easy to use and fun environment. Security and safety are paramount to protect our (grand)children online, and so we wanted this communication channel to be private, rather than shared with, or accessible by the broader social media community. We will soon be rolling out digital Apps and continuing to build in new custom features – if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear from you – please contact us at any time.

We welcome you to GlobalGrandparents®!
