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:

Code of Conduct October 2018
Safeguarding Policy October 2018
Safeguarding Report October 2018
Data Protection (incl Beacon) Feb 2018
Imagery Policy January 2016

These documents should be read if appropriate to your group:
Travel Policy December 2016

Accessibility for Disabled Members
Workshop Activities - Risk Assessment

Those of you who run a group with income and expenditure will need to fill in a Group Leader Return at the end of April, July, October and January, or, if you prefer, at the end of each month. Completed forms need to be passed to the treasurer.
