About the U3A
The U3A is an amazing organisation. It comprises people coming together to learn, laugh and live. In the UK it has been running since 1982 but is part of an international organisation begun in France in the 1970s. Membership is increasing rapidly, as is the number of U3As. The U3A is a self-help organisation offering older people no longer in fulltime employment the opportunity of lifelong learning within a friendly and sociable framework. Each U3A is independently managed while adhering to the ethos of and being affiliated to the Third Age Trust (TAT). The TAT is the national representative body providing a wide range of services to the local U3As. See the four minute video on U3A life in the right hand column...
