Oxford Foundation for FASD

This work has highlighted the need for a professional membership based body focusing on FASD, and a focal point for both commissioning and disseminating research which will lead to a reduction in prevalence of FASD and evidence based practice for supporting those affected by FASD.

This has led to the formation of The Oxford Foundation for FASD.  To find out more about this exciting project and how you may become a member, please visit or email,
