About Us

NOFASD Australia is an independent not-for-profit charitable organisation. We are the national peak organisation representing the interests of individuals and families living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).

Our Vision is the prevention of alcohol exposed pregnancies in Australia and an improved quality of life for those living with FASD.

NOFASD Australia has a strong commitment to FASD prevention at a primary, secondary and early intervention level.

NOFASD Australia is working towards ensuring FASD is recognised as a disability in Australia, promoting social inclusion by advancing the rights and interests of people living with FASD, and providing the necessary supports to individuals and families at a grassroots level. This advocacy work is fundamentally important in preventing the social, health, economic and justice consequences of this condition for all Australians.

In addition to delivering support to families living with FASD, NOFASD Australia also provides education and training workshops to parent and carer groups, government and non-government service providers and school communities throughout Australia.

Our strategic priorities are:

  • Information and support services for individuals and families
  • Community engagement
  • Education and training
  • Policy and advocacy
  • Building partnerships
  • Research

For more information about our strategic focus and how we intend to achieve our objectives, view our Strategic Plan.

NOFASD Australia is funded by the Australian Government under the Health System Capacity Development Fund.

NOFASD Australia’s Patron is The Honourable Dame Quentin Bryce AD, CVO.
