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.

Film Request.

I have been approached by a student at UWE, let me know if you are interested in taking part.

Subject: SOCIAL GROUPS - University research

Hello there,
My name is Jess Mascilo and I am a second year student at UWE in Bristol, studying Filmmaking and Creative Media.

I am currently in a group, who are producing a documentary about "Loneliness in the City".

At the moment, myself and Josh who I am working with are looking for social groups in Bristol who may have a few members that have felt lonely in the past, and perhaps have a good story to tell.
We are designing an interactive website, where you would click on the person the audience may be interested in, and perhaps a video clip will show up of the person telling us their problems, or a sound clip, or just a paragraph on what they have said.

It would be of great help if you could help us in finding individuals who would be interested in being part of our website, and that don't have a problem in speaking about their experiences.

Thank you very much!

Jess Mascilo
