on Monday, 16th March, 2020

Many FAN groups or FAN group venues have closed as a precautionary measure in response to the Coronavirus. Please check the find a FAN meeting page for updates. The picture is changing rapidly and it is likely that the programme will be increasingly affected over the next weeks and months. If you are thinking of coming to a FAN meeting please only come if you and the people you spend time with are well, not sneezing, coughing or have a temperature. FAN is a friendly place but we no longer hug or shake hands in groups. Any specific queries please get in touch via our contact page or through facebook page thefancharity. Keep safe! Do keep in touch via our Fb page.
