SCAN's newsletters are issued monthly.  Usually 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 since the previous issue.

Paper copies would normally be distributed to community centres and libraries in our Borough of Spelthorne, and some local community groups and organisations and groups.  The last year has been difficult because of COVID, but we have still been able to produce the newsletters which also go out in an email, also at the end of each calendar month. If you would like to go onto the mailing lists either for an electronic copy or a paper copy, please send an email with your contact details to info@spelthorneaccess.org.uk or send a text message to 07853 038933.
