The FAN Charity’s impact

For more than twenty years the FAN Charity has welcomed people from around the corner and around the world to its friendly conversation groups in a spirit of kinship. FAN Groups bring people together to meet listen and talk – by listening with respect we learn about each other’s lives and are able to appreciate our common humanity. FAN Groups contribute to community cohesion, counter loneliness and provide a safe welcoming space for those learning English.  FAN Groups are growing! and providing even more opportunities to connect. 

All FAN Groups are free and open to all but we are a charity and rely on funding to continue our work. If you feel you are able to give please go to  Your support will mean that we can host FAN Groups for free, for everyone.

If you enjoy attending FAN and would like to help us continue to grow, if you are able, you can show how you value FAN by making a donation to our work.   

Although you may not attend a FAN Group but if you support our vision and operations you might also like to financially support FAN.

To donate to FAN please visit CAF Donate.

How to leave a gift in your Will

What kind of gift can I leave?
There are many ways you can leave a gift in your Will, from a cash gift to a specific item or even a percentage of your estate, left after you have thought of your loved ones.
How do I leave a legacy to The FAN Charity?

Speak to your solicitor regarding the different options for leaving a gift. By drawing up a Will with a solicitor you know it is legal and valid.
