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.

Please visit our News and Events section which is regularly updated. The Events Calendar page provides a handy summary of all our activities nationwide in the coming months.  We produce an electronic newsletter, FASD Connect, several times per year. To access our latest update, please click here. To go on our mailing list for us to send future editions direct to you, please click here.

We  have a Friends of The FASD Trust scheme, open to people who give to us regularly. We ask that Friends of the Trust consider giving 20 or more a year (that is just 1.67 per month), and in return we offer access to a range of additional information, as well as exciting monthly prizes and special offers. Membership forms for Friends of the Trust can be downloaded here, or e-mail Tammy at friends@fasdtrust.co.uk.

We have recently updated our  Donations and Fund-raising page, so please take a look there to get details of the various ways in which you can now donate funds to support our activities, and also to learn about ways in which we can help you to organise fund-raising and awareness-raising events.

We are also pleased to tell  you that our Family Finder Service, after a successful initial trial period, has become a regular part of the range of support services that we strive to provide. This is one service in particular that can potentially make a huge difference in the life of a child with FASD!
