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.

Make sure your MP is in Parliament on October 26th

Because the Family Justice Bill will be coming up for its 2nd reading.

Family Justice Bill

The Family Justice Bill is important to every family in the country today.

It’s about improving transparency in the Family Justice system to help children and parents and to weed out bad practice which is under reported and in many cases ignored and shrouded in secrecy.

How can you help?

There are a number of ways you can help, firstly by simply contacting your MP to make sure they are in Parliament on 26th October 2012.

Another way you can help is by adding this bill onto any websites, groups or organisations that you may be connected with.  

A website is under construction and we are also asking for any organisation that will support this bill to allow us to use their logo on our website,www.familyjusticebill.com and www.familyjusticebill.info as a way to thank them for their support. Please contact us if you are interested in this offer.

The draft bill will also be available on the website.

Please spread this important message to every one you know. 

(Thanks to Russ for this info)
