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.

Parental Alienation Awareness Day, not just a day.

Today is a day for raising awareness of PA, but of course it is not just one day.
Parental Alienation is affecting millions of children here in the UK and across the world, not just today but everyday of their young lives.
Days where children are being denied a loving and caring relationship with both parents and their extended family.
Day after day, of wondering.
Wondering why the adults in their lives have to be so hurtful to each other, have to bad mouth each other and adults who constantly tell them Dad/Mum/Granny and Grandpa just don't care about them anymore.
I know that all the parents and grandparents who I speak to are screaming out their love for the children, just praying that one day the children will hear.
Recently, I have spoken to several grandparents whose grandchildren have heard and are shouting out loud themselves children doing it for themselves.
Parents must put the children first, they may not get on with their partners anymore but they must have loved each other once to have created their children in the first place.
Remember how it was that moment the children entered the world, full of expectation of a life of being loved by the adults around them.
They deserve better, they deserve to be allowed to be children not a weapon to be used to hurt.
Being a parent is a life long responsibiity.
