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.

Why are they doing this to the children?

I had a very special visitor last night, a very new baby who is just gorgeous and he spent the evening with us. As all babies he is full of promise and expectation, completely reliant on the adults around him.
The way the adults in his life behave,care and support each other will be his role model for his future.
So what happens to over one million children who are denied contact with their grandparents and the children denied contact with both parents who are not able to have the love and care they deserve?
How will they regain their trust in adults?
