Parents and carers of children with suspected or diagnosed Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) have told Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership that one of the things they value most is the chance to share their experience and learn from others who are in a similar situation.
To increase support for families affected by FASD and opportunities for them to meet each other, grants of up to £1,000 are being offered to voluntary organisations and groups in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport and Tameside. Voluntary organisations and groups that could offer help to families affected by harm caused by alcohol during pregnancy are being invited to apply for support.
The grants are initially intended to support activities taking place from October 2019 to April 2020 next year. The deadline to apply for a grant is 20 September 2019.
