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.

Support groups nationwide.

If anyone is interested in setting up a support group in their area I would be pleased to set you off in the right direction.
I can also always send you posters and leaflets to help raise public awareness.
This blog has had over 8,000 hits since I set it up, from people all over the UK and all over the world.
There are thousands of grandparents who are going through this and it is important that I do all I can to let them know that they are not alone.
This group is completely independent from any organisation, and we are focussed on denied contact, rather than other issues.
By being independent and not politically motivated in any way, we are able to focus on the children who are being denied their right to be loved by both parents and grandparents.
There is no membership fee.
