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.

Reminder,Reiteration and Rebellion?

Just another reminder that there is a change of date for our next meeting, it is now Friday, April 13th at 2pm same venue.
Also want to reiterate that Bristol Grandparents Support Group is an independent group, we are not affiliated to any other organisation, we have local groups being set up by other grandparents, we have no government funding and there is no membership fee.
Look forward to seeing those of you who can make it.
As you will know this week we have been blessed with the arrival of 2 beautiful grandsons.
Just in case there was any doubt, I set this group up because we are denied contact with our granddaughter and have been since 2007, and she is the reason that I do what I do.
In no way am I going to stop, I will continue doing what I do, for her and the million+ children in the UK who are denied contact with their grandparents.
