We've had a request for case studies from Alyx Barker, a producer at Channel 5 News.

Alyx is looking for retired grandparents under the age of 64 who help look after their grandchildren on a regular basis. She asks: "Did you know that grandparents looking after grandchildren may be eligible to receive pension benefits? They can receive National Insurance credits which go towards getting a full state pension."

Participants would need to take part in an interview tomorrow.

If you're interested in contributing, or have any questions, please feel free to call Alyx on 020 7430 4898 or get in touch via We at MNHQ don't have any further details about this, and Alyx won't necessarily be monitoring the thread, so if you have any questions please do contact her directly.
