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.

Shared Parenting, have you filled in consultation document?

Please don't complain about our Family Law problems, if you have not filled in the governments consultation document, on shared parenting, it can be done online.
During The Family Justice Review when we had the opportunity to have our say, the numbers of people who actually did so was quite low, so it is up to us to have another say, not just me but everyone involved in this denied contact issue.
If I sound as though I am moaning, I am!
When grandparents talk to me saying how wrong it all is, and I ask if they have written to their MP, filled in consultation documents they will say, "Whats the point?'
The point is your grandchildren and their right to have a loving relationship with both parents.
Over to you.
