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.

Reading Grandparents?

Ok, are there any grandparents in the Reading area who would be interested in meeting up with other grandparents who have lost contact with their grandchildren?
If so can you get in contact please.
I am often asked about groups in areas all over the UK, and it would be great if any of you fancy meeting up, I of course am willing to give you any support or posters, leaflets etc that you can use to publicise your meetings.
You don't have to be skilled in anything except being non-judgemental all you need is a good listening ear, an ability to make a cup of tea and possibly making a cake, (of course you can always but one!)
There are thousands of grandparents all over the UK who want to talk to others who understand so what are you waiting for!
