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.

Son/Grandson being deprived opportunity to go to the Olympics.

What price would any child put on the opportunity of attending 3 events at this years Olympics?
Unfortunately, no-one knows.
A loving Dad has tickets to take his son, but he is denied contact, and although he has attempted to get in touch with his son he has been unsuccessful.
Emails have been sent by Dad and the young mans Grandmother, but there has been no response.
As with the issue with sending cards and presents, an adult is denying the child the right to make a choice, it is their Human Right, going to the Olympics with Dad is surely an opportunity of a lifetime.
If indeed this has been kept from him, what will happen when he knows the truth?
Will it benefit the resident parent, I think not.
