Wadhurst & District U3A tries to ensure that they keep all members safe which led, for example, to a number of First Aid workshops for committee members and interest group convenors, run by the St. John's Ambulance as well as an updated database of next of kin. Now members are now being given ICE cards (In Case of Emergency), encouraging them to complete and keep in their wallets or purses with the names and contact numbers for two people who should be contacted in a crisis.
