The National Organization for FASD – UK (previously known as NOFAS-UK) has launched a new online resource. This campaign is for people under 25, the ones who can toss aside all the old excuses and inaction. It’s time for fresh perspectives and change.
Alcohol-exposed pregnancies risk Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders.
Everyone knows we don’t feed alcohol to babies. But did you ever think where the alcohol goes when a pregnant woman has a drink? Is it worth the risk? In a world where we too often can’t control things, FASD is something we can do something about. We can create brighter futures.
This is the start of a 3-year campaign. We want to arm every young adult in the UK with the life-changing fact that when it comes to pregnancy, the safest choice is “no alcohol, no risk.” To do that, we need your ideas, strength and input. It sounds huge, but it’s fact – in just one generation, by supporting alcohol-free pregnancies, we can massively decrease the number of lives affected by this hidden epidemic. Let’s do it.
Please sign up for updates and check back often. We will be adding new materials about RISK– for schools, pubs, events. This party is just getting started.
