FaNs stands for ‘Friends and Neighbours’, a movement passionate about making every moment count for older people in Essex. The FaNs club is a vital part of this movement and focuses on the benefits of bringing old and young people together. We aim to break down stereotypes on both sides, through the shared enjoyment of learning, laughing and companionship.

We love hearing from our FaNs. Tell us about what you’ve been up to and how you’ve been helping the older people in your community. Whether that’s through your school, college or an after school youth club, tell us about the positive impact you’re having, what you’ve learnt and the types of things you’ve been doing as a FaN.
