West Midlands U3A Region


Welcome to the website of the West Midlands Region, the only land-locked region in the United Kingdom!

Our region includes the six counties of

Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands,

Worcestershire and Herefordshire,

(including all relevant unitary authorities)

We are a very diverse region, from isolated rural village to city metropolis, from agriculture to service industry, manufacturing to technology….. and the people are excitingly diverse too!

However different we all are, we are brought together by our love for learning now that we no longer have the commitments of full-time work or young family. We are now Third Agers, we like to learn, to laugh and to live!

We currently have 85 U3As within the West Midlands Region, and with the success and growth of the movement we are always encouraging new members to start up.

Every U3A is a member of the Third Age Trust and across the 12 regions of the UK there are now over 1025 U3As, and over 450,000 members.

If you would like to know more or to join in please contact the West Midlands Trustee.
