We are a very diverse region, from isolated rural villages to city metropolis, from agriculture to service industry, manufacturing to technology and the people are excitingly diverse too. We have 6 Universities within our region including Cambridge, Anglia Ruskin, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and East Anglia.

At present there are over 140 U3As within our Region, and with the success and growth of the movement we are welcoming more U3As all the time.
Every U3A is a member of the Third Age Trust and across the 12 regions of the UK there are now over 1000 U3As, and over 300,000 members.
The East of England Region is restructuring its organisation to improve helping with growth, development and educational support.
