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.

Finger Prints in Uganda.

As grandparents who are denied contact we always wonder how our grandchildren are if they are safe and happy.
I watch programmes of little children in other countries going through their lives with such strength and resourcefulness, of course the children who are not in our lives are hopefully fortunate to be living a life that is very far removed from these children.
I worked at a primary school several years ago with a teacher who has put her concerns of children in Uganda into practical support and help, here is a link to her website it is astonishing what she is achieving.
