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.

A great grandchild.

A little while ago I heard from a grandparent who had not seen their great grandchild, I have just heard today that she has now been reunited and hugs aplenty have taken place.
She had some wise words.
She said it may not always be possible to forgive but leave the past behind, the consequences of not being able to do so will have the catastrophic result of not being able to be part of these precious little ones lives.
I am so delighted for them all, what a perfect start to look forward to the new beginnings of Spring.
