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.

Can you help.

As you know we are independent group and there is no membership fee for becoming a member.
Obviously, since setting the group up in 2007, it has cost money to run the group, the day to day running such as postage, phone calls, literature, publicity etc mounts up.
I am going to apply for some funding to cover the cost of updating the website etc, when I apply for funding from community funding options, I have to have a specific project and have to give account of exact costs etc, and community foundation charities wont give you a grant for day to day running.
So this is where you come in, I have never asked before but any donation would be gratefully received, any amount however small would be great, cheques can be made out to Bristol Grandparents Support Group ,or if you prefer I can give you the groups bank details for electronic transfers, please get in touch for those details.
Many thanks.
