Face to Face Support Groups for Parents:
With funding from the Commonwealth Department of Health, parent led support groups are happening in various localities. Parents (birth, foster, adoptive, or kinship) meet to share the successes and challenges of raising children of all ages who live with FASD (whether diagnosed or not). Please contact Vicki 0400 133 107 or by email if you are interested in joining one of these groups or starting a new group in your community.
