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.

Grandchildren saying it for themselves.

I don't know if it is because Spring is in the air or if it the Esther effect, but there has been four grandparents who are beginning to build bridges and relationships are in the process of being healed.
As you know I go on and on about never giving up hope and this is why.
 The children's voices are being listened to, which is how it should be, they want the relationship back that they hold so dear. Memories of good times with granny and grandpa, they have asked questions and are expecting answers.
There may be a long road to go, but if the will is there on both sides, it will work.
Allow the past to go, don't go over old ground, work towards a better future.
Respect each others differences and grab every opportunity to have a loving relationship once more.
I wish the grandparents involved all the love in the world and I expect to see photos!
