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.

4 years denied contact.

At Easter it will be exactly 4 years since we saw our granddaughter and 4 years since our son had any contact with his daughter.
It is difficult to describe the enormity of sadness that fills every part of you, how it is always there,someone so dear to all of us is not sharing in our lives, not being able to receive the love and care we all feel for her.
The last time she was here she spent hours playing in the garden hunting for Easter eggs that the Easter bunny had hidden, squeals of delight rang out and if I listen very hard I can still hear her laughter.
Sometimes I need to remind myself why I am doing what I do, and its for her.
I am not looking for sympathy just support, support for all families who are enduring this heartbreak.
