The FAN Charity

Virtual FAN

Finding a FAN group! We are beginning to get back to Face to Face FAN but this is a SLOW process as we need everyone to feel safe. So to find a FAN meeting you need to look in two places Virtual FAN (for Zoom meetings) and then your area to find Face to Face Groups. So please start your search with Virtual FAN (at the bottom of the list on the left of the screen), then try the area you are interested in to find Face to Face groups.

FAN groups meet weekly and are for men and women. Come and join us for an hour of friendly and conversation. If you are learning English or are new to the area coming to FAN is a great way to meet local people and to make friends. FAN groups are free to attend.

Important! ALMOST all FAN groups are meeting on Zoom but some are beginning to meet Face to Face again. So please start your search with Virtual FAN for all Zoom FAN groups, then try an area for face to face groups.  Thank you for your patience and we look forward to meeting you soon. 

There are currently 25 active Virtual FAN groups.

There are 3 Virtual FAN groups currently on a break.
