Welfare

One of the guiding principles of our U3A is to promote well being and ensure inclusivity for all our members. In these challenging times with this in mind the committee decided to appoint a ‘Welfare Lead Contact’ and John Mackelworth has agreed to take on this role.

His aim is to be a point of contact so that any U3A member can raise issues connected to welfare and accessibility. He is also liaising with other organisations and plans to share details of what is available in the community.

You will find a link to a Directory of the local organisations that may be able to offer help and support if needed. This has been prepared by Robert Stone and we would like to express our appreciation for his efforts in compiling it. It will no doubt be more widely shared in the community.

If there are any immediate issues or concerns please do not hesitate to contact John on: tel. 07748 620176. Calls will be treated in complete confidence.

The attached document will be updated weekly as necessary. Even beyond the COVID crisis, we imagine this directory will still be very useful for us all.
