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 opinion.

Obviously everything I write on here is my opinion, and I hope it is not offensive in any way.
Heaven forbid that any MP I might have had contact with feel that they can't endorse the blog, I didn't ask them to, and would never want to make them feel uncomfortable.
A reply I received recently is utterly patronising and shows that no MP will have the ........ to stand up for the million children in the UK denied contact.
Within the reply it also says that family conflict can be very complicating, and that only the close family really know the truth. How dare they say that, WE ARE close family to our granddaughter and we know exactly the truth.
I had better stop now before I explode.
