Member Support

We are an ageing population – though ‘young at heart’ sometimes we encounter difficulties in mobility, hearing, sight and so on. If you are having difficulty with these or other aspects related to health then please let the Group Convenor(s) know so that you can discuss any changes that may help.

The U3Aplus section of the Third Age Trust website ( has advice which members may find helpful. Carers may attend meetings free of charge with you if needed, or it may be that a member of your group would be happy to give you a lift or accompany you on the bus. Many U3A’s do have members who are on hand specifically to help.

If you would be willing to join a team who could offer support to members, getting to or actively taking part in, their group meetings please let Monica know at
