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.

Could you support someone?

I have been asked recently by several grandparents, if any members of the group would be prepared to talk to one another, via the phone. There are lots of people who are not able to come to meetings for a variety of reasons, working,distance, illness and immobility.
I will obviously never give out details ,data protection, stuff, without your permission.
I do feel there is a need though for this, so if anyone is prepared to support someone ,who might have no family, or if you could be paired up with another grandparent who has similar circumstances, it would be good to hear from you.
