In-FACT (Independent Fetal Anti Convulsant Trust) was formed in November 2012 by myself and colleague Janet Williams, and we have since been noted through Government as the Official National Campaign Group.   In-FACT has been set up for the purpose of giving relief and assistance to all persons whose disablilities were caused by the fact of their mother taking an Anti Convulsant drug during pregnancy to treat her condition.  To support by means of payments to the beneficiaries to help with the cost of care, welfare, treatment/education supporting them with their injuries

With intentions to pay sums of money to help and support submitted through Government or Pharmaceutical Company donations

The Trusts work entails providing long term support for those affected by Anti Convulsant medications during pregnancy, and working with a wide range of professionals and organisations in raising awareness of Fetal Anti Convulsant Syndrome (FACS) within Government and Health Agencies.
