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.

Grandparent Reunited, Never give up.

We all know that christmas is a particularly difficult time for grandparents and grandchildren denied contact.
I wanted to share with you a positive story.

"For years I had such a terrible time not being able to see them but thankfully the love and care we gave the Grandchildren in their early years sustained them. My oldest Grandchild will be ...  on boxing day and has regular contact with me ,he also assists  me with seeing the youngest one. Unfortunately contact with the middle child is still difficult, but two out of three is not bad.
Please put on your  tree of hope never give up because the Grandchildren miss you as much as you miss them and one day they will come back to you."
