Friends and Neighbours (FAN) in South Wales

FAN is a local charity that brings people of all ages together in the spirit of friendship. If you enjoy meeting others, or are feeling a little lonely, you will be sure of finding a warm welcome. FAN groups create a sense of community and are a wonderful network. If you’re learning English, FAN can be a good way to improve your skills.

FAN stands for Friends and Neighbours. Who is my friend? Who is my neighbour? Come to a FAN Group and you’ll meet friends and neighbours and feel more hopeful for the world. It’s a great opportunity for local people to meet newcomers. Very few people know all their neighbours these days!
