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.

Young grandparents required for research?

Can you help?

Subject: Research study - Becoming a young grandparent - Participants required

Hi, I am currently studying for my PhD at the Centre for Health and Wellbeing Research, University of Northampton.  My research is exploring the lived experiences and meanings of becoming a young grandparent (40 years and under).  I am enquiring if there is a possibility that you could put details of my study on to your website?  I am struggling to find young grandparents living in the UK to take part.  I can send you more information including my contact details and full criteria to take part if you can help at all.
Kind Regards
