Support for Families & Practitioners
FASD Network UK
We have been providing training and support in the North of England since 2011 and connect with around 1500 local families. We are the only FASD regional organisation for the North East and Yorkshire and Humber regions and work strategically across the local authority areas. Please contact us to let us know that you are a family in our locality.
Local Caregiver Support Groups
Support groups are specifically for those raising children or caring directly for children with FASD or suspected FASD. They are informal groups for people to get to know one another, build friendships, ask questions, problem solve and celebrate achievement. We rotate groups in different locations across the North East and Yorkshire so that everyone has a chance to attend an event in their local area. (If you are a family please register with us and we will give you the dates of your local groups).
Online Family Support
We also engage in a closed Facebook group called FASD UK which offers daily support for 3500+ families. This is a vibrant community of support where we talk about all things FASD, our concerns, learn new skills and share the joys of raising children with FASD. LINK
Online Bulletin Board
We have an open Facebook page called FASD Network UK. We post information about local community activities, updates about FASD information and we advertise support groups on this open page. Please click 'like' so that you get alerts when anything is posted. LINK
