Peer Support

We recognise that parents/carers of children, young people and young adults with a history of prenatal alcohol exposure are the 'Experts By Experience'. Our peer support model is built around a thriving supportive FASD community of parents and carers from across the UK. 

Our private Facebook group for parents/carers is a safe, supportive place where there is no such thing as a silly question. It is closely moderated by the FASD Hub team, all of whom are also parenting children/young people with FASD and is the beating heart of the FASD Hub. 

Members of our Facebook group are invited to attend our fortnightly virtual peer support meet-ups. Hosted by 2 of our team, parents and carers can share their 'wins' and 'challenges' and get to know others in our community who understand the challenges of parenting. 

To join our Facebook group, all members are first required to become members of FASD Hub Scotland. Members receive regular mailing and exclusive access to early booking for many of our events.

1:1 Support

Struggling with navigating diagnosis? Looking for support in parenting strategies? Through our Family Support Service, we can offer support to parents and carers of children/young people with FASD or Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (PAE).   

No diagnosis is required to access our services, and we welcome adoptive, biological, fostering, kinship and step families. Parents and carers are matched with one of our FASD Advisors or Parent Partners, who all have lived experience of FASD and will work alongside you in identifying areas of support.  

Our team can offer advice, a listening ear and signposting to useful resources. We can also offer families, subject to funding, access to enhanced therapeutic services, including parent reflective sessions with our clinical psychologist, counselling services and a range of therapies. We accept self-referrals: get in touch via our helpline or email [email protected] to find out more.
