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.

The true meaning of support.

We had a good meeting yesterday, many thanks to all.
August is usually a quiet meeting due to holidays, but we had several new people to welcome and as usual the support given by everyone was marvellous.
It is a really big deal when someone arrives for the first time, so to walk into happy smiling faces is a testimony to you all.
It is a privilege for us to witness the friendships that have developed over the last 5 years, we just offer a place, a cuppa, a cake you do the rest.
It is after all a support group, and that is down to all the grandparents involved, without you it would be an empty place.
Thank you so much again.
