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.

Aims and Objectives of The Bristol Support Group.

I was asked on Friday by a new member of the group what were the aims and objectives of the group.

: To give support to others who are denied contact with their grandchildren due to family breakdown.
: To share experiences and ideas.
: To continue to raise public awareness.
: To continue to put pressure on government to make changes and to stop grandparents being called 'irrelevant people' in the eyes of the law.
: To eradicate the phrase Grandparents Rights, to be replaced to Grandchildren's Rights.
: To lobby our MP's

Our objective is to see our grandchildren.
