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.

Grandparents always come up with brilliant ideas!

Thanks to everyone for turning out yesterday on a very wet and windy afternoon.
It was good to welcome new grandparents and as always thanks to you all for being so supportive to new people.
Lots of new ideas to mull over, the best ideas always come from our meetings.
The number of grandparents contacting us is quite extraordinary , of course it would be much better if no-one was contacting us because it would mean there was no issue with children being denied contact.
Also thank you for the testimonial letters, they mean a great deal.
