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.

Thanks to Media.

Thanks to all media who picked up on the Harassment issue, grandparents living in fear of being warned of harassment order via solicitors letters or indeed being arrested questioned, finger printed and DNA samples taken,for sending birthday cards/present to grandchildren.
It was featured in Bristol Post, The Telegraph, Daily Mail, Times Daily and The Sun, various radio stations, to date, let me know if you have seen it anywhere else.
I hope my MP will continue to peruse this and find answers as to why this happens.
