friendship.

We formed our Friends Groups as we are all carers & parents of children, young people and adults with undiagnosed or diagnosed Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).

 

We all started on this journey at different points but together we have become stronger and with the knowledge and skills we have gained along the way, we want to be able to offer you what we needed when we first started looking.......... friendship.

We offer you confidentiality, a safe space to talk and a friendly ear to listen.

Email: You can email us and chat confidentially to an experienced parent 

Facebook: Our new Friends Facebook pages gives us lots of experience and support from across our community of FASD; join us:

FASD Friends Ideas to Support FASD:   https://www.facebook.com/groups/493779352170508

Online: We run a monthly Online Friends session (first Tuesday evening of the month) where we chat and share stories, we offer subject specific topics with guest speakers from a range of subjects that are relevant and chosen by carers & parents. 

Drop in: Subject specific sessions where we try and find solutions or hear from guest speakers

WhatsApp: We provide a WhatsApp Responsive Friends Group where we support each others challenges & celebrate our smallest but biggest marathon wins!

Play: We meet up and let our children just be themselves .... they connect at a totally different level

Events: We host weekend & holiday events in discrete safe venues 

Cake: We meet up...... chat, laugh, share stories and eat cake.... but we are there for each other if we need to be or are there in the background when we need lifting

You are not alone - we will welcome you to a safe space to explore FASD and be supported through other parents who care.
