"Supporting grandparents who have little or no contact with their grandchildren"

Who We Are

There are many grandparents who, due to circumstances very often beyond their control, never get to see their grandchildren.

The reasons can vary considerably. It can be due simply  to a falling out among family members, sometimes the parents of the children have divorced or have simply moved a long distance away.

In other more serious situations parents of the children involved may suffer drink or drug related problems, the children may be removed for safety reasons, in some cases fostered, meaning grandparents have no legal access to their grandchildren. 

The support group was first formed following a difficult situation I found myself in when it was made difficult for me to see my grandson. Things came to a head soon after his first birthday and I had no contact for nearly three years.

 When I started sharing my situation with other people it soon became clear that I wasn't alone, and that many other grandparents were suffering similarly, and like me they found it difficult to share what they were going through with other people who were not suffering

What Would You Like Now?

Choose one of the options below.

GranPart is designed simply to give grandparents who are going through this difficult time an opportunity to meet others in a similar situation. In an informal environment we chat and share experiences and can be empathetic and supportive to each other.

We welcome grandparents who have all kinds of reasons why they don't see, or have lost contact with their grandchildren. Sharing their experiences, crying if it helps make them feel a little better, smiling when remembering the good times, but never being judged by others who have suffered similar fates.
