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.

Family Justice Review Invitation to consultation.

If anyone would like to go you need to register your interest.

Dear Jane Jackson

As you are aware, the Family Justice Review panel launched its interim report and invited responses to its proposals for reform. The panels’ interim report sets out proposals to tackle problems faced by the family justice system.

Its recommendations aim to bring greater coherence through organisational change and better management, making the system more able to cope with current and future pressures, reducing duplication of scrutiny and diverting more issues away from court.

As part of the consultation process, we are holding four open discussion events in England and Wales to provide an opportunity for individuals to hear more about the review and debate and discuss the proposals set out in the interim report. Details of these events are below:

Wednesday 18 May (approximately 2pm – 4pm) London

Tuesday 31 May (approximately 2pm – 4pm) – Cardiff

Wednesday 1 June (approximately 2pm – 4pm) – Manchester

Tuesday 7 June (approximately 2pm – 4pm) – Birmingham

The events are expected to last approximately two hours. Due to limited spaces the places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to attend please register your interest at partners@justice.gsi.gov.uk stating what date you are interested in.

The interim report and online survey can be found at: www.justice.gov.uk/publications/policy/moj/family-justice-review.htm

Kind regards
