FAN International

The FAN Charity, UK lists FAN Groups that want to run FAN Meetings. FAN Groups are small independent groups which choose to run meetings as 'listening groups' and welcome people of all backgrounds who are friendly. To 'listen in silence' until it is our turn to speak, is our way of showing respect to all.

FAN attendees ask if there are FAN Groups in other countries. Upon request we will provide links to Organisations in other countries.

We have provided these links to facilitate information about international FAN Meetings. Our decision to provide you with links to organisations in other countries does not constitute or indicate review, endorsement or approval. We have no way of knowing how they are run.

Please check carefully with local people that the meeting is in a safe venue and take care to find out if they run correctly. If you attend a good FAN Group why not write to the message board? Let us know if there is a problem.

Below is the map of the world… FAN started in the UK in 2003 and this year 2012 it has started in the first country outside of the UK – that is Pakistan.
