The National Organisation for Foetal Alcohol Syndrome-UK Helpline

NOFAS-UK (The National Organisation for Foetal Alcohol Syndrome-UK), helps individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, their families and carers and provides information on Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). FASD is a result of alcohol consumption during pregnancy.

We are dedicated to supporting people affected by FASD and their families and communities. We are a source for information on FASD, and we raise public awareness about the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. We provide programmes for schools and the public to educate all women to avoid alcohol in pregnancy, as well as FASD training for health and welfare professionals, teachers, and foster carers.

We have a national helpline which responds to enquiries from parents, family members, carers and others needing advice or referrals for children with FASD disabilities. We also receive calls from pregnant women, midwives and medical professionals concerning FASD Prevention.

If you are pregnant, or thinking of becoming pregnant, and want to know more about pregnancy and alcohol, please call our helpline on 020 8458 5951. We also have a leaflet for pregnant women about FASD.

FASD and other alcohol-related birth defects are 100% preventable if a woman doesn’t drink during pregnancy.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is the leading known cause of 
learning disability.

We have a national helpline which responds to enquiries from parents, family members, carers and others needing advice or referrals for children with FASD disabilities. We can advise people to recognise the signs of FAS, what happens after diagnosis, and ways families and carers can adapt to the behaviour of a child or an adult with FASD.

Please see our website for further information and resources or call our helpline on 020 8458 5951.
