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.

Would you say that it public?

How freely we all write on social networking sites, chat rooms on websites etc.
The internet is a public forum , it is out there, whether we like it or not, so caution is required.
I was on a site recently where someone was concerned about who was visiting the site, and if they would be reading items that could be quite private!
If its on the web, it is not private.
Of course we have to also be aware that some people may not be who they say they are, we worry about our grandchildren on the internet, we need to remember what we say to them.
My view is if you write something or comment that you wouldn't be prepared to make public, or to say to someone face to face, then DON'T WRITE IT.
