Welcome to the FAN Charity Website. FAN stands for Friends and Neighbours. Here is everything you need to know about the Charity and its FAN Groups and how you can participate.
FAN Groups exist in South Wales and further afield. Each Group holds a weekly meeting where local people and those from around the world come together to meet, talk and listen to each other in a friendly and relaxed way.
With the onset of Covid 19 all face to face FAN Groups closed. However, very quickly, through the hard work and ingenuity of staff and volunteers they were replaced by Virtual FAN Groups using Zoom. FAN Groups continue to meet daily and face to face FAN Groups will reconvene as and when it is safe to meet.
People coming to FAN tell us how much they enjoy the meetings and the benefits they get from coming to our simple listening groups. As you explore our website you will get to meet some of us and read our stories. Also you can find information about how the FAN Charity is run and how our generous funders have enabled us to bring the benefits of FAN to more communities in South Wales.
Looking forward to meeting you in FAN very soon!
