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.

Hope Poem

All I have is hope,
From day to day,
I believe it helps me to cope,
From day to day.

I listen to others,
I try to support,
Grandparents , Dads, Mums, Sisters and Brothers.,
I try to support.

How to mend these broken hearts?
For you tears I cry,
Our souls fly to other parts,
For you tears I cry.

Do I have the answer to this sadness,
Families should love,
We must stop this madness,
Families should love.

We will all stand together,
For the children,
At one for ever,
For the children.

For now , all we have is hope,
Give us strength, to fight on,
Hope, to hold you one more time, hope,
Give us strength to fight on.
