Bristol Grandparents Support Group

"Helping to alleviate isolation and loneliness linked to family breakdown for grandparents."

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

In 2007 we lost contact with our granddaughter due to our son's divorce, and so I decided to set up a support group for others who were going through the same heartbreak.


It is estimated that over two million grandchildren are estranged from their grandparents due to family breakdown. A recent report showed 1 in 7 grandparents are denied contact with their grandchildren.

Family breakdown can occur for many reasons,  separation or divorce, drug or alcohol dependency, domestic violence in the home, bereavement or family fall out.

During this uncertain time we have had to cancel face to face support group meetings, but we are doing virtual meetings on a variety of platforms. Don't suffer in silence get in touch.

Grandchildren’s Rights - One voice, united, breaking the silence.
