Welcome to

The FAN Charity

FAN stands for Friends and Neighbours. We support FAN Groups. We hold weekly meetings in South Wales and further afield. A friendly and relaxed way for local people and those from around the world to meet, talk and listen to each other. We sit in a circle, talk about our daily lives, our ideas and experiences.

Support FAN

All FAN Groups are free to attend but we are a charity and rely on funding to continue our work. If you feel you are able to give, your help will mean that we can host FAN Groups for free, for everyone.
