Hi everyone and welcome to Bristol Grandparents Support Group blog. Although we are Bristol based we have grandparents from all over the UK and beyond as members.

It is estimated that over one million children in the UK are denied contact with their grandparents due to family breakdown which may have been caused by divorce/separation, alcohol/drug dependency,domestic violence,bereavement or family feud.
Every child has the right to have contact with their grandparents
if they wish and unless proven unsafe for them to do so. To deny contact from a parent or grandparent has to become as socially unacceptable as drink driving.
I hope to keep you up to date with what is going on in BGSG and I shall continue to campaign for the rights of children to have a loving and meaningful relationship with both parents and their extended family. So please join in as good to hear your views, not just mine!
I also will support via Skype.
There is no membership fee to be part of Bristol Grandparents Support Group.
Esther Rantzen says, " To every grandparent, links of love can never be broken in our hearts."

Please contact during office hours.

Difficult time of year.

I have been contacted by a large number of grandparents over the last week and I think it is so very difficult for us all at this time of the year.
The shops are beginning to get geared up for festivities for families, and children, which makes it even more painful than it is every day.
Not being able to see our grandchildren during ,what is, a family time is so painful for some grandparents they just close their doors and hope Christmas comes and goes as fast as possible.
For me it is yet another year that I wont be able to share in my granddaughters excitement on Christmas Eve, I wonder what she will get in her stocking?
Remember that we are all here for one another and I am at the end of the phone.
