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.

My Submission accepted by the Children and Families Public Bill Committee.

Thank you for your submission to the Children and Families Bill Public Bill Committee. Your submission will be circulated to members of the Committee.
The Committee may make use of your evidence for the purpose of considering the bill, including—if it wishes—printing and publishing your evidence, or making it available for public inspection in the Parliamentary Archives. The Committee will not publish or otherwise disclose personal postal or e-mail addresses or telephone numbers. The Committee has decided that witnesses can themselves publish or otherwise make use of their own evidence, once it has been published on the Public Bill Committee webpage. If, on further consideration, there is information in your submission which you believe to be sensitive, you should contact us to explain what harm you believe would result from its disclosure. The Committee will take this into account when deciding whether to publish the evidence.
Further information on the progress of the bill is available on:
