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.

Children's Wish this Christmas.

As the magical day of Christmas is just around the corner,
Thoughts of early mornings, giggles and sniggles,
I will be thinking of the children who won't be feeling the love and care of both parents,
Who wonder what they did wrong, what made Mum or Dad go away?
Their special wish this Christmas, if they were allowed to say would be,
"Please let me in, let me know Mum and Dad and Gran and Grandpa,
Let me feel all their arms around me, I love them all.
I am just a child, you are making decisions for me,the wrong decisions, I need all my family,
Here and Now, every minute of every day,
When I am in my room I lie and look out at the stars wondering, just wondering if they are looking up at the same stars as me.
Christmas is a time of love and understanding,but does no-one understand me."
