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.

My Group is NOT affiliated to any other group..

Having just received a letter from a national charity/organisation ,I need to reiterate ,for what is now for the third time, The Bristol Grandparents Support Group, is in NO way affiliated to any other charity/organisation, for grandparents.
A newspaper made a mistake, and I am getting the fall out. I did write to the newspaper concerned the same day the article was published on Dec 15th, to rectify their mistake.
I don't know about any other organisation but I have one aim and one aim only, and that is to support grandparents,non resident parents etc and to continue to raise awareness for the children who are caught up in this situation, and most importantly my beautiful granddaughter.
