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.

Secondary Schools not following guidelines.

It appears that Secondary Schools across the country are not following government guidelines in keeping BOTH parents involved in children's education.
If you are a non resident parent you have equal rights to information about education matters.
If you son/daughter is in this position write to the governors of the school and the Director for children, families and schools in the area your grandchildren go to school.
The Director should gently inform schools of their responsibilities.
Let me know if you are having this issue.
Please also write to your MP's asking them to pass on this concern to the Minister responsible for education.
