        1. Hi Tania

          My apologies, for any confusion I caused in my response above. The response should have read, ‘this course is only available to people residing in Australia’.

    1. Hi Petra

      Thanks for making contact. The weekly sessions will be conducted using the Zoom online meeting platform.

      Please could you email or call the NOFASD Helpline on 1800 860 613 with your contact details and I will call you next week to discuss more about the course. Many thanks Sophie.

  1. Hi, will the training also be available to follow after the online session? Due to the time difference between Australia and South Africa following it online would be difficult. I would love to do the training and still receive my certificate.

    1. Hi Denise

      Thank you for making contact. Unfortunately, the online training support group will be a closed group and therefore participants will need to attend the group at the allotted time. For this reason, the group will only be available to people residing in Australia.

      Please contact us via our email address at if we can offer support in any other way. Many thanks Sophie.

      1. You have stated that it is is available in New Zealand…
        Now your telling Dave it’s not…. Is itOr not?

        I would also like to participate please

        1. Hi Gina,
          It is too late to enrol in this course, but we are compiling a list of people who are interested in future courses. If you would like to be added to this list please email with your contact details and which state of Australia you live in.
          Thanks for your interest.

  2. This would be a awesome program for all kinship and foster Carer’s. Even if at later date it was run during a day time period so kinship carers could participate easily as some may be preparing meals. At the night times.

    1. Hi Wendi,

      Thank you for your feedback. It is not possible to find a time which suits everyone, as carers are such busy people! We are always talking about how we can best support families and will certainly keep your comments in mind if we are able to offer this again in future.
