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.

Granddaughters blog.

I have just written on my granddaughters blog, and it makes me so sad, just so grey inside and out.
Does she read it?
I wonder what she is doing, is she laughing, is she listening to music, watching TV, out with friends?
I miss her so much, all of our lives have a huge space in them.
Being denied contact is heartbreaking and no-one understands how it hurts, unless they have experienced it themselves.
All we want is to be part of our grandchildren's lives, to know they are happy and safe.
We are all still here with arms open, just waiting..................
