Berkshire Grandparents Support Group
Berkshire Grandparents Support Group is a safe supportive space for grandparents and close family members who have little or no contact with their grandchildren due to difficult family situations. We aim to support you and help you find practical ways to deal with the impact that having no contact with your grandchildren has on your life and that of your wider family.
Berkshire Grandparents Support Group are working on creating a wider knowledge base that you can utilise to support your needs in the form of a website. We are working towards creating a regular stream of professional visitors to the support meetings who will be able to advise you on things such as mental health and legal advice. We have a private Facebook group where you can interact with others in the same situation from all over the world.
Berkshire Grandparents meets on the second Thursday of the month at Winchcombe Place Care Home, Maple Crescent, Newbury RG14 1LN. There is plenty of free well lit parking available. Meeting times are 6.30pm to 8.30pm for supportive conversation over a hot drink and cake. Everything spoken of in these monthly gatherings will be completely confidential.
