FANNING OUT! FAN wins grant for work in Swansea and Newport!

on Tuesday, 9th October, 2018

Great news! FAN has been successful in receiving Big Lottery funding to increase the geographic reach of FAN groups in the Newport and Swansea areas. They recognise that FAN groups promote wellbeing, alleviate loneliness and build strong relationships in and across communities, as well as offering opportunities to people to practice conversational English. We are delighted that they have given us the means to grow strong and sustainable groups beyond Cardiff and look forward to working with partners, old and new, to bring these benefits to a far wider community. Huge thanks to players of The Big Lottery for their generosity and support.
