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.

Fathers Day

There will be Dads all over the UK, receiving hugs, soggy cornflakes and most importantly , love from their children, just as it should be.
Sadly, there will also be thousands of Dads, feeling heartbroken and empty as they are denied contact with their children.
Children who will have made cards for Dads they know they will not be seeing and wondering why,what did they do wrong to make this happen.
So to all Dads and children who won't be seeing or hearing from one another,I send my love and remember that you both hold your personal memories deep in your heart they can not be taken from you.
