The Home Team

Fran Challice is the founder of Spaced, a social enterprise, with a background in Occupational Therapy.  Fran specialised in the audit and provision of Accessible Environments alongside architects, fire officers, building control personnel and developers.

Holistic practice has been the core practice since 1997, working with patients, health interest and community groups, construction personnel, planning professionals and Neighbourhood Planning teams.


Spaced is honoured to have 2 great assistants –

Anicca Neümuller from Stockholm, Sweden, who is a fine artist based in Monmouth


Barbara Kendry, who has swapped her canal boat for a ‘land base’ in the Forest of Dean.

Spaced associations are the Centre for Accessible Environments; the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean Tourism Association and the Forest of Dean Local Exchange of Trade Scheme (we trade in Pounds and Pence but Deans and Vicars may be possible on enquiry).
