The 9th day of the 9th month is International FASD Day. This is to draw attention to the importance of going alcohol-free for the 9 months of pregnancy. In the UK we celebrate September FASD Awareness Month
We have a fun-packed month of action planned for September 2022!
This year for FASD September FASD Awareness Month, National FASD is providing resources and support for daily actions to help raise awareness of FASD and to promote wellbeing and support for those with FASD and those who care for them. Stay tuned!!
For every day on our FASD Action Calendar, we will provide blog posts with resources, links, sample letters and all that you need to make this the most exciting FASD month yet. You are free to use what you’d like and to adapt things as needed for your local area. We can’t wait to see your creativity and energy in action.
Activities will include things you can easily do. Some will be for parents/ carers, practitioners, and of course we’ll have some fun suggestions for people with FASD too.
Along with other FASD UK Alliance groups we will use the hashtags:
We have created these logos with sister organisations in the FASD UK Alliance to be used freely and widely by other groups in the UK.
Head over to our merch page to get your awareness month t-shirts! These are generically branded so all organisations in the FASD UK Alliance can use them. They are priced at cost. Available in various styles and in black or white. Please note as these come from an external vendor, please order early to ensure the t-shirts will arrive in time for 9/9. They come from an external company and we cannot guarantee the timing.
