9th September FASD Day

Meet Niamh.  Niamh is 18, has FASD and 9th September is the day for her and the thousands of other children and young people growing up today affected by FASD whom we support via our work here at The FASD Trust; the day when we draw attention to FASD, the potential life-long impact of drinking alcohol in pregnancy and highlight our work supporting all those affected by FASD.  This year we are wanting to Create Conversation about FASD - find out how you can get involved!
