The FASD Trust
Bringing Hope to those affected by FASD
Registered Charity Number: 1125212
The FASD Trust provides support, training and information to those affected by FASD (Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders), their parents / carers and the professionals, such as teachers, doctors, social workers and others seeking to assist them.
In addition, The FASD Trust seeks to raise awareness of FASD, in order to improve the understanding of those affected and the support offered to them by the wider community and to seek to lower the incidence rate of FASD in the UK, as people begin to understand the potential risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy.
The FASD Trust was set up in 2007 by Simon & Julia Brown who have an adopted daughter affected by FASD. After their daughter was diagnosed, Simon & Julia were surprised by the lack of support and information available and The FASD Trust was set up in response to the "gap" they encountered in support services and the lack of knowledge about this condition.
The FASD Trust reaches out to all sectors of society, to ensure the vulnerable individuals with FASD are supported and protected. They now run support groups for families across the UK, have a Medical & Healthcare Professionals Forum, have guides available for teachers, and are developing a number of other resources, especially for social workers, foster carers and adopters, as many of the most severely affected children are found in the care system.
The FASD Trust also works with young teenage parents, grandparents, birth parents and seeks to be compassionate in its response to anyone affected by this lifelong, but not life-limiting condition.
