Community NewsSCAN's newsletters are issued monthly.  They are distributed at the end of each calendar month and include Information that has been collected from various sources that report on disability issues. Paper copies are distributed to community centres and libraries in our Borough of Spelthorne, and some local community groups and organisations and sheltered residential accommodation addresses.  2020 was a difficult year because of COVID, but we were still able to produce the newsletters and sending them out by email, also at the end of each calendar month. If you would like to go onto the mailing lists for either an electronic copy or a paper copy, please send an email with your contact details to info@spelthorneaccess.org.uk or send a tex message to 07859 639025 (Please Note our New Number)..

Digital Image of TNL CF LogoSCAN is celebrating after being awarded £3,406 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
We will be using the funding to cover the printing and postage costs of our monthly informative newsletter during our 30th Anniversary year. This new National Lottery funding will gives us the opportunity to include more information for people in the local community who do not have access to or are unable to use computers. The printed newsletters are distributed to all local libraries and community centres, other voluntary groups and residential addresses as well as electronic copies to local organisations and service providers.

We continue to hold virtual meetings and as it’s our Anniversary Year, and we hope that some of SCAN’s former members, will be able to ‘drop in’ at the closing stages of future meetings, to introduce themselves. Details for joining the meetings can be obtained by contacting info@spelthorneaccess.org.uk or visiting our web site www.spelthorneaccess.org.uk/news/scan-news/spscd-forum/
