Group leader

Thanks to all of you for volunteering to run groups! We couldn't run our U3A without you.

The Group Leaders\' Handbook will answer many of the questions you have. If you need more help, don't hesitate to contact the Groups Co-ordinator, or, indeed, any member of the committee.

The Group Leaders Agreement requires you to familiarise yourselves with U3A policies. These policies can be found on the Documents page of the website.

The following documents should be read by everyone:

Travel Policy Aug 2021
Code of Conduct Aug 2021
Safeguarding Policy Aug 21
Safeguarding Report Aug 2021
Data Protection incl Beacon Aug 2021
Imagery Policy Aug 2021
