Following a career in retail, Tracy Allen decided to help children through fostering whilst bringing up her family and running a property development business.
Having fostered children with FASD for over 15 years, Tracy’s strive for a greater understanding of the condition, the need to build a network of professionals with the necessary knowledge, and her tenacity to help others living with FASD, led her to launch the FASD Awareness Campaign in 2015 with a friend, setting out to raise a greater awareness ofthe condition and supporting those living with it.
Tracy worked for over a decade as a volunteer for the Charity Medway Mediation honing her skills in mediation, anger management, FGC and advocacy. In 2016 she co-founded the Charity FASD Awareness South East. In 2018, FASD Awareness South East registered as a
charity and on the launch of its #BeAware campaign a year later, became the national organisation FASD Awareness.
Also, in 2018, Tracy and her family set up a business, TPA Supported Living, providing high quality supported living opportunities, exclusive activities and bespoke support packages for adults with learning disabilities.
In her rare spare time, she and her husband Paul enjoy time with their family and their ever- enlarging brood of grandchildren, creating more babysitting duties.
