For details about last year’s programme, click here. Great fun was had by all!
We had an amazing Brain Base 2019. A huge thanks to all the young people, parents/carers and speakers who joined us! And especially to the talented team that made this possible. More details will be available soon from our event.
Participants shared their ‘stay cool’ strategies. This was made into a poem and acted out in the final showcase.
This “Stay Cool Toolkit” is designed to help them remember things we covered.
The Brain Base: FASD Wellbeing Summer Fun Days 28-30 August 2018
Co-organised by NOFAS-UK and the E. Herts & Area FASD Support Network this pilot programme brought smiles to the faces of young people with FASD and those who love them from across the country. We hope to build on this summer’s experience next year, we are seeking funding to bring this innovative programme to different parts of the country, working in cooperation with local partners via the FASD UK Alliance.
FASD Wellbeing Workshop – Living in the Here and Now
On 28 October 2017, the first NOFAS-UK FASD Wellbeing Workshop, ‘Living in the Here and Now,’ featured Dr Cassie Jackson, Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist, and Andy Jackson, member National FASD Advisory Committee. The workshop featured presentations followed by Q&A (not filmed) and scenarios for small group problem solving. NOFAS-UK seeks to maximise the impact of these workshops by freely sharing the insights and content. You are not alone!
