We are delighted to let you know about a new partnership between FASD Hub Scotland and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to provide information, support and activities to families affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and/or Prenatal Alcohol Exposure (PAE).  This 6 month project aims to build a community of support in the area for parents and carers, and also raise awareness of FASD and the support available through FASD Hub Scotland amongst families and professionals.

What's happening?

Over the course of the project, there will be a number of ways in which families in the GGC area can get involved. We will be hosting family events (online and virtual) and creating opportunities for parents and carers to come together. We are also planning an event for health professionals and have one or two surprises planned too!

How can I get involved?

The events and activities we are organising are open to all parents/carers (adoptive, biological, fostering, kinship and step families) who are caring for a child or young person with a history of prenatal alcohol exposure (with or without an FASD diagnosis). Families should reside within (or receive their primary healthcare from) the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde area. This covers much of Glasgow, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire. 

We ask that all those taking part in the project, register as members of FASD Hub Scotland - membership is free and includes:

  • Regular updates on the GGC project events
  • A membership pack exclusively for GGC families
  • Access to our closed Peer Support Facebook Group
  • Advance access to tickets for FASD Hub training and events

Thursday 19th May

We held a Parent and Carer meet up at Dobbies Garden Centre, Braehead. It was great to meet some of our GGC families and many shared with us how much they appreciate the opportunity to chat with other who 'get it'.

Saturday 28th May 10.30am - 12noon

This had to be seen to be believed! Andy hosted the group from his kitchen and we all made delicious pizza!
