Currently, we do not know of any supports available for grandchildren who are experiencing the forced loss of their relationship with their living grandparent. Therefore details on this page for now are (slightly unfortunately) for grandparents only.
We will add grandchild support information as soon as we find some. 

Leeds Beckett University has kindly offered their undergraduate pro bono Law Clinic support to grandparents seeking legal advice. 

This service, provided by law students supervised by two family law tutors, is available without charge to any grandparents who are struggling to access legal advice (due to costs or otherwise). 


Note that capacity and availability is limited due to the nature of undergraduate work i.e. term-time and with availability around lectures and other academic activities. Note also that the clinic's service is not restricted by geography as appointments can be conducted online. 

Here's the link to the Law Clinic with contact details, opening times and a map:

Grandchildren who have reached the age of 18 or over are of course legally able to make contact with their grandparents themselves.
