People with FASD here in the UK have created a manifesto that says how they would like doctors, teachers, parents and others to better support people with FASD.
More than 60 people gave us their ideas!
The UK FASD Manifesto was revealed by five young adults with FASD at a big national conference at the University of Salford on 30 March 2023.
People said it was the BEST part of the conference!
Way to go Bailie, Claire, Georgia, Rachel, and Paula!
Georgia is a young adult with FASD. She met her MP and the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Steve Barclay, and presented him with copies of the UK FASD Manifesto.
She also talked to him about the challenges faced by people with FASD as they turn 18 and become adults.
Georgia said: “It was really good to spend 40 minutes talking to Steve Barclay about how FASD has affected me and what needs to be done […] to support people with FASD. He was very genuine and interested in what I had to say to him.”
Every word in this animation comes from someone with FASD.
A huge thank you to Georgia and Jody, two young adults with FASD, for doing the voice over!
