Dulwich & District

Groups

Listed below are the Interest Groups that Dulwich & District u3a offers.

During the Covid pandemic some groups are not able to meet, however, many others are meeting:

  • virtually using Zoom,
  • face to face (following current Government guidelines)
  • WhatsApp, Email and/or Phone

These are all denoted with an asterisk * after their name.

Where groups wish to meet in person, a risk assessment form should be completed by the activity organiser and those intending to participate. Click on home risk assessment if the group is to meet in a private home (form updated July 2021) or on risk assessment form otherwise (form updated May 2021).

If you are interested in joining a particular group then please click on the Group Name to find further details.
If you can't find what you are looking for and are interested in starting up a new group then please contact the Group Co-ordinators by clicking on the blue bird logo.

For further information about our Group activities in the last year, please see the latest Activity Report on the DOCUMENTS page.

Under normal circumstances many groups are held in members' homes, but we are fortunate to also have access to Rosebery Lodge in Dulwich Park - for details of location and access click ROSEBERY.
Blue badge holders who wish to apply for vehicle access to the park click PARKINGFORM

Some minority interest groups are run through the Greater London South East network for U3As - for information click NETWORK

The London region LGBTQ+ group is hosted by Wandworth U3A and open to all London members, click LGBTQ+

For guidance from the Third Age Trust on Coronavirus and Activities please click COVID AND BEYOND. This link includes access to Risk Assessments and Checklists.
