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.

These are my personal views and advice.

When I set up Bristol Grandparents Support Group I had no idea how many people would contact me, it has been overwhelming.
What started as a group specifically for grandparents has become a group for everyone, Grandparents, Mums and Dads, people interested in family life in general and the injustice of the Family Justice system.
I always welcome comments, but it seems that on several occasions someone, feels it necessary to imply that they know individual cases that I might make reference to, and suggest that my opinion is questionable and in fact may harm my site.
I want to make it clear to everyone, that I never discuss individual cases, unless given permission to do so, and that my blog is my personal account of how I see things.
As always, my only aim here is to highlight the damage being done to children and their right to the love and care of BOTH parents and extended family, unless there is a very good proven,evidenced reason way they shouldn't.
