Australian FASD Support groups

The staff and family support team at NOFASD Australia understand the feelings of isolation sometimes experienced by families living with FASD. While we are unable to provide direct assistance such as treatment or legal services we do provide confidential telephone and email support to individuals living with FASD and their parents, carers, family members and service providers.

If you are seeking referral information to diagnostic and related supports throughout the country or would like the opportunity to share your experience or concerns with our staff or family support person please call us on 1800 860 613 (free call) or send us a message

 Support Groups

Adelaide FASD Support Group meetings are facilitated by NOFASD founder Sue Miers at a location  reasonably central to the City but where car parking is not an issue. The purpose of these informal gatherings is to provide attendees with an opportunity to find understanding and support through group discussions and to access helpful resources. Please use our online enquiries form  to register your interest and find out the date and times for the next meeting.

MyTime groups are also active in every state and provide support for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone caring for a child with a disability or chronic medical condition. It’s a place for you to unwind and talk about your experiences. It’s a world away from appointments and therapy. It’s support for you.

Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centres (CRCCs) provide free and confidential information on local carer support, disability and community. The national network of CRCCs provides a link to carer support services and assists carers with options to take a break through short-term and emergency respite. Where appropriate, a CRCC can help with putting in place regular respite for a carer to reduce the need for unplanned and emergency respite.

Carer Gateway is a national online and phone service that provides practical information and resources to support carers. The interactive service finder helps carers connect to local support services.
