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.

Waterloo Road Grannies 4 Justice!

Well I have just watched BBC Waterloo Road, and the storyline line was of twins who had been brought up by their Gran, but Mum was back on the scene and went to court to get a Residence Order, she succeeded and Gran was going to be stopped seeing the Twins.
It showed the distress caused to the girls who were struggling with having to choose between Mum and Gran.
It was good to see the BBC brought it to the correct conclusion with Mum and Gran talking to each other and sorting it out for the girls.
Well Done BBC.
A lesson for us all, maybe?
