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.

MPs to throw out Norgrove report?

I am trying to find out if this is correct. It has been posted on F4J Facebook page.

"FAMILY JUSTICE REVIEW REPORT UPDATE: We understand from a Senior Whitehall aid that the Government has decided it will not accept Norgrove’s recommendation on access rights. I have been told that Nick Clegg and Iain Duncan-Smith have both submitted reports recommending that the report is rejected in its entirety. I have also had confirmed from an MP that a meeting is being held this week. The minimum requirement from Nick Clegg and Iain Duncan-Smith for resurrecting the entire document is the guarantee that fathers’ rights of access will be enshrined in law. As yet we have had no official confirmation, and given Cameron's penchant for U-Turns this could probably go full circle, and round again, before Christmas is out. But we have confirmation of this proposal from more than 1 MP. "
