FANE was established in 2004, is based in Newcastle upon Tyne. One of the main purposes of our team is to help adults in the North East of England with learning disabilities to make and keep friends.

Although services are based in Newcastle we accept interest in both attending and opportunities to volunteer from the residents of North Tyneside.

FANE champions friendship, raising expectations and creating opportunities to do ordinary things.

FANE support the ending loneliness in North Tyneside campaign.
