Looking Back on Lockdown

This is a new SLP, produced by members of the Research Network.
It will certainly be one for the archives of the U3A and will give future readers a picture of how our generation coped with a situation that none of us had ever imagined. It is totally anonymous but by using place names in the titles of the pieces, it makes it clear that this is a national project.

There are two versions:

1) A pdf version for viewing or downloading on a computer or large tablet: Looking Back

2) Or click here for the Mobile Phone Version

Team members have a range of skills developed in U3A groups and networks and in a variety of public, private and voluntary sector organisations. Their skills include negotiation, problem-solving, public relations, communication, governance, event management, policy formulation and implementation, volunteer recruitment and retention.

The team offers the region’s members information, advice, support and training around the expansion of existing U3As, creation of new U3As, problem-solving within new and existing U3As and delivery of workshops aimed at improving the running of U3As.
