Trust U3A

Interest Groups and Courses

Flowers and Fruit Composite“U3A shows the value of communities of interest and learning which are not defined by age, or by past experience, but instead are defined by the experiences still to be explored”.

Interest groups in Trust U3A, like all U3As, are run by members for the members.
Trust U3A Group Leaders are all members who have volunteered their experience, skills and time for the mutual benefit of the members in their groups.

How to join a group or register for a course, talk or workshop:

If you would to join one of our groups you must first be a member of Trust U3A - please see our Join Tab above. N.B this applies to members of local U3As too.

Members of Trust U3A can join a group or sign up for a talk or course on the Trust U3A members portal:

Beacon Members Portal

Courses, talks and workshops are marked *

N.B. Some groups may require a minimum number of members to begin so there may be a delay before the group starts running on a regular basis.

In the event that a group, talk or course is unable to take any more members you will be placed on a wait list. We will endeavour to provide additional groups and repeat the courses and talks to accommodate more members.

If you have an idea for a new group that you could lead or help to organise. Please click the link her Setting up a New Interest Group for details on how to set up a new group.

For more information please contact the Groups Co-Ordinator.
