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.

How can this happen?

It will never cease to amaze me how evil some people can be to one another, how can someone be so wicked/resentful that they prevent a Mum/Dad from being part of their children's lives?
How can a person be wrongly accused of something, have to face the indignity and humiliation of having to go to the police,to be questioned for hours imprisoned in a cell to then have to wait for weeks before ALL accusations are dropped.
This is nor fantasy, not something I have just made up, it is fact it happens not rarely but often.
Where has the local policeman gone, who knew families on his/her patch , knew families who may be neglecting children those families who were vulnerable. Common sense policing.
Of course children must be protected from harm, but we must also have superbly trained people to know when things are contorted and to recognise Parental Alienation as fact.
The damage that is being caused to Mums/Dads wrongly accused is immeasurable.
How did we get to this?
