About

The East Hertfordshire and Area FASD Support Network was started in November 2015 by two local parents at the encouragement of a local pediatrician, who saw the need for such a group through her work with many local families affected by FASD. A year on families from East and North Herts, Stevenage, Welwyn and Hatfield, Harlow and surrounding area meet regularly to exchange and learn from experiences – good and bad – and support each other through life with FASD.
