NOFAS-UK (The National Organisation for Foetal Alcohol Syndrome-UK) is dedicated to supporting people affected by Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), their families and communities. It promotes education for professionals and public awareness about the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. NOFAS-UK is a source for information on FASD to the general public, press and to medical and educational professionals.
The NOFAS-UK Helpline responds to enquiries from parents, family members, carers and others needing advice or referrals for children with FASD disabilities. The Helpline also receives calls from pregnant women, midwives and medical professionals. In addition, NOFAS-UK works in cooperation with sister organisations in the FASD UK Alliance to co-administer the vibrant FASD UK Facebook group that supports more than 1,900 families.
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) are caused by prenatal alcohol exposure. Alcohol can cause more damage to an unborn baby than any other drug. Alcohol-free pregnancy is the healthiest and safest option. If you are pregnant, or thinking of becoming pregnant, and want to know more about pregnancy and alcohol, please get in touch through our helpline or email us.
