An introduction to the campaign and how you can help
Support your employees and customers in going alcohol-free during pregnancy with the latest advice and guidance.
Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) which is a range of lifelong disabilities, such as problems in social understanding, learning difficulties, brain damage, heart defects, and below-average height and weight. It’s entirely preventable if the unborn baby isn’t exposed to alcohol in the womb. You can find out more information about FASD here.
We’re asking all types of businesses, whether you’re a self-employed hairdresser or large organisation, to get involved and help spread the word to your employees and customers so we can end new cases of FASD.
We’ve produced plenty of resources to help you to spread the word to your employees and customers to encourage healthy pregnancies in your workplace, including posters, intranet graphics, social graphics, and many more, so you’ll be armed with all the information you need
Please share your activity with us on social media to help spread the word further or send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
