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.

Thank you.

Thanks very much for the great turn out this afternoon, it was good to see you all.
You were marvellous with the camera crew, and you will look lovely!
It was also good to see you sharing photos of your grandchildren with one another, happy memories.
Can I just say something about funding, there is of course costs involved in setting up and sustaining the group,  it was suggested that we had a standing order form, so that if someone wanted to donate to the group they could use the form.
It is totally voluntary.
When I set up the group, I said that there would be no membership fee and there isn't and there won't be.
I never want anyone thinking they have to give a donation to be part of the group.
Please get in touch if you have any concerns.
