London Region of U3As

HOME PAGE & WELCOME

The London Region of U3As is a forum of independent U3As operating within the London area. We exist for the mutual benefit of London U3As and their members. We have 43 autonomous U3As in the London area totalling over 23,000 members. Individuals become members of the 'London Region of U3As' by virtue of their membership of a constituent London U3A.

Please use the tabs above to explore the pages on our site. Click on the 'London U3As' tab at the top to see a list of all the U3As in the London area. If you want to join one of these U3As or contact them, use the links on that page.

U3As in the London area are invited to nominate two 'Delegates' to represent them at quarterly meetings of the London Region of U3As. Click here: DELEGATES for further information.

Our Aims & Objectives are basically:

  • To support all U3As in the London area in the advancement of education and, in particular, the education of older people and those who are retired from full time work
  • To support the exchange of experience and knowledge amongst U3As, and with the Third Age Trust.
  • To encourage and support U3A growth and development in the London Area,
  • To support the overall aims and objectives of the U3A movement and the Third Age Trust.
  • To promote the diversity of membership


What We Do

  • Provide a forum in which all U3As in the London area have the opportunity to liaise with each other and with the Third Age Trust.
  • Initiate and support jointly organised activities that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of U3As in the London area and enhance the U3A experience of their members.
  • Promote effective communications and act as a focal point of contact and information about U3A activities in the London Area.
  • Forge and expand links with educational, Third Age, and other relevant organisations for the benefit of all U3As in the London Area and their members, and to ensure a strong representation of the U3A movement in the London Area.
