The Russell Family Fetal Alcohol Disorders Association (rffada) is a national not-for-profit health promotion charity dedicated to prevention and ensuring that individuals living with FASD or at risk of fetal alcohol exposure have access to diagnostic services, post diagnostic
multidisciplinary management planning and parent peer support. Parents and caregivers are supported with a “no blame no shame” ethos.
On this site you will find a range of support resources and information relating to Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, or FASD.

The Russell Family Fetal Alcohol Disorders Association (rffada) Strategic Plan is based on four key priorities:

  1. Prevention
  2. Individual, parent and family support (including referral)
  3. Education and training
  4. Involvement in research and projects
