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.

A plea from me.

To enable us to raise the awareness of denied contact and the effect on the children, it is imperative that we have a list of grandparents who are willing to share their stories and experiences with  the media.
At no time will your real name be given out or the name of your grandchildren.
Once your story is in a newspaper out in the public domain, that story can be used again in related issues.
If you want more information contact me.
It is no good me writing to MP's etc if I can't substantiate  claims, of harassment etc.
I can not do this on my own.
