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.

700 hits,numerous emails and calls, I am getting there.

As you might imagine I have been a trifle busy this week, as with the first item we did with Esther Rantzen there has been an overwhelming response to the second item!
I am trying my best to respond to everyone as quickly as possible if you haven't heard from me please contact me again.
I have also introduced people to my private FB group which is working like a forum where grandparents can get the support they need from others in the same position.
It is private and can not be seen by anyone who has not been added by myself, there have been a few problems with people being able to access my FB page.
If you want to be added please email me, by the very nature of the group there is a process I go through before adding anyone.
There is an open group for people as well https://www.facebook.com/groups/597069527037215/
If you request to be added it may be that my reply is in your 'other' file in your messages.
