FASD AWARENESS

FASD is the term used to describe the lifelong impairments that can result from brain damage caused by alcohol exposure before birth. These impairments might become evident as difficulties with physical activities, speech and language, memory, learning and behaviour issues.

Working towards a better future

Offering support, education, training, research and information on
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

WELCOME TO FASD AWARENESS

FASD can be the outcome in individuals whose parents were either not aware of the dangers of alcohol use during pregnancy or were not being supported to stay healthy and strong during pregnancy.

Our main aim is to support the prevention of alcohol exposed pregnancies and to improve the quality of life for those living with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and their parents and carers. Our vision is to be a strong and effective voice for individuals and families living with FASD, while supporting initiatives across the UK to promote prevention, diagnosis, intervention and management. 

We are supported by individuals and companies alike, such as Lloyds, SEIB Insurance Brokers, Allied Fabrications Ltd, Tunstall Jubilee Foundation, and many more.
