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.

On-line Support.

As the group is continually growing and reaching out to some many grandparents nationally and globally,it is important to reiterate that if you are not able to come to our local meetings then support and advice is always available on-line.
There are various ways that you can access us.
There is a contact page on the website www.bristolgrandparentssupportgroup.co.uk where I will get back to you as soon as I can.
You can of course leave a comment at the end of the posts here.
Another good way of finding support via a forum, I recommend www.grannynet.co.uk it is a great website, part of its resources is a forum, where you will find a special thread called Denied Contact where you can contribute and give support to other grans who understand exactly how you are feeling.
The forum is full of a huge variety of different threads on all sorts of different subjects.
You will receive a warm welcome.
You will have to join the site and register for the forum to enable you to post.
Please don't feel that you are not able to find support on-line, you can.
