The Hertfordshire FASD Support Network (originally the East Herts and Area FASD Support Network) was started in November 2015 by two local parents

…and with the encouragement of Dr Inyang Takon, a local paediatrician who saw the need for such a group through her work with many local families affected by FASD. 

We now include families from across Hertfordshire (and often beyond) who meet regularly to exchange and learn from experiences – good and bad – and support each other through life with FASD. Our FASD Club has become a place where children and young people with FASD can learn from and with each other about their condition and coping strategies. 

We want all affected by FASD in Hertfordshire to know that they are not alone.

We are pleased to be affiliated with FASD UK Alliance.  You can access a positive and informative online network of support via the private  FASD UK Facebook page.

Herts FASD is pleased to be working closely with National FASD, which has moved its office to Ware due to COVID. We have been granted a desk space in the office and we are looking forward to further developing our projects now that we have a physical base.
