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.

Soldier refused permission to say goodbye to his daughter- update

This morning l/Cpl T C who is serving his country in Afghanistan had an email to say that his ex has contained a Residence Order for his daughter and that if he try to contact his little girl he will be arrested.
To say this young soldier is devastated is an understatement.
In this country we have secret courts for Family Justice, of course child protection must be upheld, but cases like this must be out in the public arena, we are supposed to be a free democratic country and there must be an end to secret courts.
Please write to your Mp's ,this is a subject that must be aired.
