The Childcare and Early Years Survey of Parents estimates that grandparents provided informal childcare for 1.8m children in 1.4m families in 2012/13 with 4% of these families making some form of payment to the grandparent. We are unable to identify the ages of these grandparents; previous studies have shown that around half of grandparents are aged over 65. </p><p>Source for grandparent age distribution: </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/220274/eia-ni-credits-changes.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/220274/eia-ni-credits-changes.pdf</a></p><p>Source for Childcare and Early Years Survey of Parents:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/childcare-and-early-years-survey-of-parents-2012-to-2013" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/childcare-and-early-years-survey-of-parents-2012-to-2013</a></p>
