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.

The muddy waters of Parental Alienation.

In the world of Parental Alienation the waters get muddied by some, for me as a lay person trying to get me head around all the different points of view is often confusing to say the lest.
I am not a professional in the field and so I look to those who are to help guide me through this maelstrom.
All I know is from my own personal experience around PA and the havoc it causes all members of the family unit, is that we have a generation of children browning up believing that they don't need both parents in their lives, and they don't need extended family either.

Karen Woodall has many more profound words to say on this subject this morning;
