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.

Communications Act

If you are make the decision to go down the legal route, in attempting to get contact with your grandchildren, remember that now in the technological era we all live in,  all forms of communication can be used in a case.
There are examples of texts, Tweets, FB comments, status's, forums etc all being used as evidence.
As we have all experienced, once something is written on the internet it is the public domain, and will and can be used by anyone.
If you are being subjected to  emails or any form of communication and it does not cease then you need to take all of it to the police and ask them to investigate a possible offence under the Communications Act section 127(1). The penalties are a fine or community order.
