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.

Missing People.

There are various things you can do to try and find a missing person- maybe you don't know where your grandchildren are now living.
I have written on a previous post, things to do.
One way is to contact the Salvation Army and their tracking service, you need to be aware that there is a small charge and that if they do track the person you are looking for they will contact them on your behalf but if the missing person does not want you to have their contact details then they can not be passed on.
If that does happen, don't despair because the missing person will know that you care enough to have tried to contact them through a third party and although at this present time they may not want contact they might in the future.
It is important that we can all say to our grandchildren in the future that we tried everything we could think of to try and contact them.
