The running of our U3A is governed by our Constitution which was fully updated in 2015 to ensure that it complied with current best practice and legislation using the latest model constitution provided by the Third Age Trust as a guide. It was further amended in 2018 to revise the definition of Charitable Purposes in line with guidance from The Third Age Trust and again in 2019 to amend the maximum number of terms that members can serve in specified roles on the Committee.
