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.

I will not be bullied.

It doesn't matter how old you are you continue to learn lessons everyday.
Sadly lately for me, they have been hard lessons.
As I have said on numerous occasions, this blog and the website are here to support Grandparents, Dads and Mums who are living through the heartbreak of not being able to see their grandchildren/children, as indeed are the meetings we have.
I am not the blame game, just here to support in anyway I can.
As there have now been over 18,000 hits on this blog, someone, somewhere finds it helps.
I certainly have been left somewhat battered and bruised.
Once again I have been reminded why I went independent, what I write on my own blog is up to me and I will moderate comments if necessary, it has only been necessary once, and that is in the last week.
Please remember that I am also a grandparent denied contact and it hurts me just as much as anyone else.
