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.

URGENT:If you are not prepared to write don't moan.

I am posting this link again, as sad to see only 29 people have made comments on the government site, if you don't have your say, your voice is not heard.
Even if it makes no difference if people are not prepared to write, well nothing more to say.
Please share this link

  • Please share this today,your comments will be read by committee, anyone who is denied contact be that Mum,Dad Grandparents etc must make their voices heard. You all count, a whole generation of children caught up in this need the adults in their lives to stand up and be counted. Doing nothing is not an option.

  •  Sorry to go on about this but....... what is now evident is that if an organisation makes comments although they may be actually representing several thousands the comment is only classed as ONE, so even though my comment represents 1,000 it is only one comment, so individuals need to respond, otherwise it is seen as insignificant.
