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.

Targeting 100 local businesses for help.

Bristol Grandparents Support Group is working towards a target of £5 thousand pounds, to enable us to gain charitable status, you have to have the £5k in the groups account before even applying, so no mean task. We intend to target 100 local businesses asking for a £50 donation each, if you know of anyone who would like to donate let me know. Our intention is to be an umbrella group to give help and support to grandparents who are denied contact from they grandchildren due to family breakdown. We will support grandparents who want to set up local groups and promote Grandparents Support UK at community events. Feel free to share this post! Many thanks.
