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.

Human rights magazine by and for children and young people launched

CRAE publishes The Right Stuff

Children's Rights Alliance for England has launched The Right Stuff, a human rights magazine by and for children and young people. Carolyne Willow, CRAE's national co-ordinator, said:

"You can feel the energy and passion for human rights on every page. The magazine is an excellent way of communicating what human rights really mean and encouraging young people to take action to protect their own and others' rights."

Funded by Mediabox, the UK's first ever human rights magazine by and for young people, features stories of children who have suffered rights violations, as well as inspirational accounts of children taking action, interviews with human rights activists and a dedicated under 10s section.

1,000 printed copies of The Right Stuff will be distributed to children and young people across England.
