Current Members Portal on Beacon

If you are already a member of our U3A, you can now update your details online and renew your membership (if now due) by following the link to the Members Portal

How to Log On to the Portal

You will need to supply your membership number and other personal contact details. If you get an error when logging on check that:

  • Your membership number is correct (it's printed on your membership card).
  • Your forename and surname are spelt correctly and start with a capital letter. Check you haven't mistakenly entered a blank space after one or both of them.
  • Your postcode is correct, with a blank space between the two sections.
  • You haven't entered any capital letters in your email address.
  • You haven't copied and pasted, or use auto-fill, to complete any of the fields. This may work on some computers but it doesn't always, so it's best to type the information each time.

You can use the Members Portal to:

  • Check and if necessary, update your personal contact details. This includes addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses and emergency contact information. You are asked to do this whenever your information changes or at least once a year.
  • See the contact details for group coordinators.
  • Upload a photo.

If you still can't log on please email the Beacon Administrator via the CONTACT page.
Beacon is an on-line management system, supported by the Third Age Trust, specifically for local U3As. We use Beacon to manage our Membership Records, Groups and Venues information, overall Calendar and to send mass emails securely to members.
