Welcome to the FASD Trust

The FASD Trust was founded in 2007 by Simon and Julia Brown to provide support for those affected by FASD and training / information for the professionals seeking to support them. The Trust now runs support groups for those affected by FASD across the UK, hosts various professional forums and has a variety of training and other resources for those affected by or interested in FASD.
