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.

Here to help.

If anyone is out there thinking,"I would like to set up a group in my area," please get in touch.
Marc and I would be happy to come and meet you and talk you through the "how to's,"
it doesn't have to be arduous, it can be as small or big as you feel comfortable with.
The basis being that it is a support group, there to give support to other grandparents who are going through this issue.
In some areas, a group may consist of just a couple of people getting together over a cuppa and sharing their anxieties.
